Plymouth Winery, Plymouth MA

IMG_0530We visited Plymouth Winery as part two of my birthday celebration, after visiting Mayflower Brewing Company. Mark and I were accompanied by my sister Samantha (she went to Cape Cod Winery with us as well), our friends Andrea (went to Cape Cod Winery with us), Bre (went to Gilmanton Winery with us) and Katrina. Mark’s brother Jason and sister Michelle also joined us (they had both been with us when we visited Blue Hills Brewery, and Michelle when we had visited Flag Hill Winery and Distillery).

Plymouth Winery, located in the Village Landing Marketplace in Plymouth MA has a cute small town/country feel. Plymouth Winery makes all of their wine in the same building as their tasting room.image (1)the shop’s wine shelvesphoto (5)Linda Shumway, Owner and Wine Maker

 

Our tasting:image image (8) image (7)

Bogarts Blend: A Chardonnay, not Oaked. They don’t oak their Chardonnay due to the feeling that oak is an equalizer and makes the wines taste different. Light with a lot of character. Pretty good. Sam and Andrea, who had gone to the Cape Cod Winery with us (and weren’t huge fans) felt this tasting started off on a good note- they liked this wine more than all that they had tried at Cape Cod Winery. This wine uses California grapes. Bre also thought it was pretty good.

Pilgrims White: A Sauvignon Blanc, not oaked. Tastes like pear, green apple and red grapefruit. No grassy flavor. Delicious. Everyone liked this one- it has a nice earthy tone.

Bug Light Red: A Zinfandel. Flavors of strawberries and chocolate. Aged in new American Oak. Not too dry. Good flavor. Sam stated that it was not a dinner wine due to the rich flavor.

Cranberry blush: 90% white grape (Sauvignon Blanc) and 10% cranberry. On a similar idea to a white zinfandel. A fun summer wine. Enough cranberry to give it a kick without being over powering. Really really good! Enjoyed by all.

Strawberry: A semi-sweet fruit wine. Really good authentic flavor. Suggested to serve chilled with dessert or as a cordial after dinner. Jason liked this wine, he stated that it tastes like kool-aid

Blackberry: Made from blackberries, this wine resembles a port. Great chilled with vanilla ice cream or next to a fire on a cold winter night. Katrina said this was delicious!

Raspberry: A true authentic raspberry taste. A semi-sweet dessert wine. Suggested to serve with champagne or chocolate cake. Bre: really liked, as it was sweet enough for her.

Blueberry: A rich dessert wine, similar to a sweet Merlot. It was really good, and on the sweet side which was unexpected.

Cranberry: Good tartness, drinks like cranberry juice.

I left with a Cranberry wine and will go back for a different bottle next time I’m in the area. Many others also made wine purchases.
