NC Wine Touring: Weathervane Winery

Hello Again Wine Friends,

I am at my second-to-last vineyard from the birthday wine tour we did a few weeks ago, and this is a good one indeed. Weathervane Winery is right in Lexington, NC, and a very quaint and pretty spot it is, too!

Weathervane with the Ladies!

Wines of Weathervane reviewed below!

Evening Breeze
WV: Fruity yet floral, a crisp Riesling. Bold and pleasing to the palette.
Beth: Sweet, crisp and citrusy white whine that brings to mind a crisp spring night.

Ionosphere
WV: Pinot Grigio offering floral notes and a crisp and flavorful taste. It is soft and fruity yet assertive and dry!
Beth: Smooth, sweetly dry white wine with lavender undertones that make it unique and intriguing.

Sunset Red
WV: Soft full flavor Merlot laced with oak to enhance fruitiness.
Beth: Soft and tart berry flavors underneath from start to finish, with a smooth oaky overtone that wraps the sip up quite pleasantly.

Cirrus Red
WV: A soft, rich textured Malbec with the taste of ripe plums, cherries, currants and red berries.
Beth: A smoothly dry berry red wine with heavy juicy plum and tart currant flavors underneath, and a hint of spice (cinnamon?) at the end of the sip.

Temperature Rising
WV: Luscious, rich and velvety Super Tuscan! This is like liquid Viagra, not for the weak hearted.
Beth: Smooth, butter texture with a grape oak finish that leaves the palate pleased.

Grand Vieux Chateau du Roi
WV: This big red wine offers a great berry & cherry aroma. Made in the style of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
Beth: Very cherry and berry flavored full-bodied wine with an oaked butter finish that makes the red wine slightly dry yet incredibly smooth.

Stratosphere
WV: Well-rounded, full-bodied mellow Zinfandel.
Beth: A dry start, with a heavy berry middle that leads to a sweet finish, this is a good Red Zin.

Tropical Wave
WV: Limited release fruity Viognier that is a Tropical Wave.
Beth: Notes of kiwi, pear & the tropics, with smooth and buttery undertones, this is one of the best Viogniers that I have tried….and that is my favorite white varietal, so, take that as a MMMMMMMMMM note from me! šŸ˜‰

In addition they carry wine slushes (two flavors usually available) at most times, red and white wine mixed with other goodness to make a frozen spectacular of a treat!

I recommend highly stopping by this quaint winery and have a tasting or a glass of wine or wine slush, relax, and enjoy the calm view surrounding the tasting room!

Craft You Later,
Beth
