Our wine tonight is the award winning Strawberry wine from Lazy Bear Winery in Easley, South Carolina.
Lazy Bear Winery focuses on award winning fruit wines and meads.
Produced from 100% strawberries.
Many of the strawberries are grown on-site and the rest sourced from local South Carolina farms.
Bright salmon in color.
Light nose of strawberry starburst and strawberry twizzlers.
Semi-sweet on the tongue, not overly sweet throughout the tasting.
Flavor notes reminiscent of fresh strawberry shortcake dripping with strawberry syrup, mid-palate lingers with notes of a hot-out-of-the oven strawberry cobbler, finishing similar to a strawberry tart.
This is an excellent representation of a true strawberry fruit wine.
Lazy Bear Winery is a micro-producing family owned winery. They may be small yet they have rack up multiple domestic and international awards!
