Duplin Carolina Scuppernoag Blush
Smell: Standard white wine dish soap smell.
First sip: This was a battle between a tart, very unripe grape and a sweet, yet chalky, unidentified flavor.
Color: Warm and rosy on top, with a little separation of color towards the bottom, leading to a white gold effect.
Gulp: The grape stays with you most but there’s also a hint of bubbly.
Extra flavor: A sliver of tree bark also enters the foray. Since I chewed wood often as a kid, that’s a plus.
