North Carolina Wine TV Review:
Scuppernong is a very old and wild grape and the wildness comes through in this bottle. Duplin’s scuppernong is thick and syrupy with a musty and overtly floral nose. The wine is well balanced and not an unfair value for around $6 if it fits your taste. To us it was too wild and harsh on the finish and too viscous with its mouthfeel. This is a wine likely to be enjoyed by many people, just not us.
