Duplin Winery Muscadine Christmas Eve

absolutely LOVE this wine. wish i could buy it in PA!
Inexpensive, sweet wine recommended to wine-cooler lovers. My family of non-wine drinkers enjoyed this drink immensely as an alternative to Sprite and CocaCola on Christmas Day.
Tasted at Duplin Winery. It is their most popular wine. This is a sweet wine that probably would not excite the wine connoisseur. However, drinking this wine chilled while sitting outside on a hot summer day would be quite refreshing. Apparently the Muscadine grape it is made from has the highest levels of polyphenol (antioxidants) of any grape tested yet. I have had worse tasting supplements before! Recommended for non-wine drinkers, and for people who enjoy something sweet and refreshing on a hot summer day.
Alcoholic fruit juice. We knew what to expect, so we enjoyed it. Tasted fresh and sweet, and went down very, very easily.
A very sweet red. Perfect for novice wine drinkers and the connoisseur alike. Delicious with dessert or an after meal treat.
This is my all time favorite some say it is to sweet but to me it is just right. It smooth no after taste a very good desert wine.
I have loved this wine since the first time i tasted it, and would highly recommend it.
External Reviews for Duplin Winery Muscadine Christmas Eve
Duplin Vineyards claims to be the largest producer of Muscadine and Scuppernong wines in the world, with an annual production of close to 175,000 cases. Founded in 1976 by the Fussell family, the winery is located in eastern North Carolina in the town of Rose Hill. Duplin (pronounced <i>doop-lynn</i>) draws muscadine grapes from 940 acres of vineyard in NC, South Carolina and Georgia to produce a range of styles from off-dry to sweet. The 50,000 square foot facility boasts a 40 foot tasting bar and is home to the Bistro Restaurant and dinner theatre.Duplin’s Hatteras Red, winner of the 2005 Muscadine Trophy at the NC State Fair, is a dessert wine made from red Scuppernong, and one of the best sweet Muscadines I’ve ever tasted. With its exotic Scuppernong aroma – reminiscent of tropical fruit and Muscat – it has a bright acidity that perfectly balances the sweet spicy flavors. Very appealing on its own, the wine is an excellent pairing for chocolate desserts, especially dark chocolate.
