Duplin (Carolina) Pink Magnolia wine review by (PB)
Rose hue awkward bouquet of sweet Cinnamony fruit suggesting apricot.
Palate--sweet on the flabby side, fruity with a very weird aftertaste.
This was given to me and it hails from North Carolina. Magnolia is the Scuppernong/Muscadine grape and gives ample demonstration that just because something can be made into wine doesn't mean it should.
North Carolina actually produces some pretty decent wines although they don't seem to be distributed too widely. Whatever you do, don't judge N.C. wines on this review of this grape. This wine is basically awful but it is another varietal I can add to my list of grapes I have tasted.
