2014 Warm Springs Muscadine

December 23, 2016 - Norman Bentley

Well here we are, just a couple of days before Christmas, and I have already given you some suggestions for wines for Christmas dinner, so now I 'm going to make a suggestion for your next picnic lunch. A good friend of mine gave me a bottle of Muscadine wine he picked up during a visit he had made to Warm Springs, Georgia and Franklin Roosevelt's Little White House. We paired it up with Fried Chicken, Old Fashioned Baked Beans, Southern Potato Salad, and Coleslaw for a delightful picnic lunch, "Southern Style", and guess what? We ain't in Kansas no more Toto.

The Old Atlanta Red opens up as it should with a broadcast of spicy, grapey aromas, which lead into juicy sweet fruit with a tangy background, and a large dose of sugar. As a boy I spent a lot of time in the Georgia woods exploring, and munching on juicy thick-skinned Muscadines which grew wild everywhere, especially down by the creeks with the vines reaching high up into the oak and poplar trees along the creek banks. After a few dozen of the hot sweet grapes, we would swing out over the creek on one of the thick vines and drop into the water for a cool refreshing dip.

The Warm Springs Muscadine Wine takes me back down memory road, and not only reminds me of those wild grapes, but also of some of the syrupy sweet home-made Muscadine wine one of my great aunts used to make. The Old Atlanta Red also tasted pretty good with our fried chicken picnic lunch.
