Duplin Winery Muscadine Hatteras Red NV

Member Review by dalascby:

I grew up in the MId-Atlantic (VA) eating wild muscadine grapes, my neighbor had vines growing everywhere. Of course as a kid I did not know that they were muscadine grapes, the old farmers in the area had a different name for them...they called them "sloves", don't ask, I don't know why. As an adult I started drinking wine for health reasons. I suppose everyone knows about the so called "French paradox", which is the extrodinarily low incidence of heart disease in France that is largely attributed to their consumption of red wine. Red wine contains a specific antioxidant called resveratrol which has tremendous health benefits (look it up). It turns out that muscadine grapes (as another reviewer mentioned) has the highest content of resveratrol than any other grape, many times more than the French red wines. It's very possible that Muscadine red wine may be the single healthiest wine that you can possibly drink, and the taste is very enjoyable for any occasion. It's quite a "mood" wine as well, if you know what I mean. ;-) Oh, one more thing, did I mention that my neighbors as a kid was an elderly couple, who both lived into their mid to upper 90's? (The grapes perhaps??)

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. [79]

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. [75]

If you love muscadine & scuppernong grapes like I do, then you will love uncorking this bottle and getting a good whiff of that Southern sunshine. A sweet, succulent, and unassuming wine. Great to use for making a summertime sangria!

After lamenting the loss of availability in my area for Croft Pink, I'd been searching for a suitable substitute to sweeten my senses without submerging into sugarcoating. Duplin's Hatteras Red looks vibrant, smells slightly floral, lavishes the tongue with opulent sweetness, and yet throws in an air of mysterious character. What is that sensuous slight musk? Whatever it is, I want more. Some cherry and cranberry notes as well? Highly romantic. In matters of taste, let the discerner decide...while I go pour another glass.
