Mus­ca­dine Wines

About the Mus­ca­dine Grape

Often called “America’s First Grape,” mus­ca­dine grapes thrive in hot cli­mates of the south­east­ern United States. This unique envi­ron­ment makes them spe­cial in their abil­ity to heal them­selves from dis­ease, bac­te­ria, and fungi that often plague Euro­pean grapes.

Many nutri­tion­ists have found mus­ca­dine grapes are loaded with more healthy com­pounds than other much-​touted foods such as blue­ber­ries, goji berries, green tea, red wine, and dark choco­late. Mus­ca­dine grapes and their seeds are one of nature’s best sources of antiox­i­dants and pos­sess anti-​inflammatory prop­er­ties. Com­pared to other grapes, mus­ca­dine grapes have 40 times more resver­a­trol — the polyphe­nol found in red wine that is proven to ben­e­fit car­dio­vas­cu­lar health, blood sugar lev­els and the aging process.

Mus­cadry: From the mus­ca­dine vari­ety called CAR­LOS, this wine is entirely made from Geor­gia grapes. The bou­quet is exotic, intense, and com­plex; the taste pro­file is vibrant, full, and ele­gant. It is an excel­lent expres­sion of the char­ac­ter of our state’s grape! Made in a style never seen before, it was aged in French bar­rels for 4 months to become an off-​dry white wine that can be sim­ply sipped on the patio as well as paired per­fectly with fish, sushi, and other light style foods. 12% Alco­hol, 2% Resid­ual Sugar.

Pink Mus­cadry: This rose ver­sion is made from the mus­ca­dine vari­ety called NOBLE: dark berry that cre­ates a wine with the same aro­matic pro­file as the clas­sic mus­ca­dine. It went through the same process as the MUS-​CADRY, with only a vari­ance on the sweet­ness level. This Pink ver­sion has 2.5% of resid­ual sugar, just slightly higher than the Mus­cadry. The bou­quet is very fruity with accents of trop­i­cal fruit, and it tastes deli­cious. Per­fect in sum­mer with fish, pizza, and fresh sal­ads. 12% Alco­hol, 2% Resid­ual Sugar.

Dun­can Creek: Made with the same high stan­dards of our clas­sic dry white wines, this light bod­ied sweet wine is from 100% Geor­gia Mus­ca­dine Grapes. The bou­quet has notes of fresh grapes, pineap­ple, apri­cot, and mango with accents of lemon grass. Sweet and crisp, it’s a true clas­sic and exotic Geor­gia Mus­ca­dine Wine. 12.5% Alco­hol, 6% Resid­ual Sugar.

NEW: Dun­can Creek Red: Dun­can Creek Red is our ruby red sweet wine crafted from the red mus­ca­dine vari­ety called NOBLE. This Geor­gia grown grape under­went a metic­u­lous wine mak­ing process to cre­ate a pre­mium wine with an exotic bou­quet and is the ideal com­pan­ion for your next cook­out. Serve chilled and enjoy! 12.5% Alco­hol, 6% Resid­ual Sugar.

Sum­mer Wine: The same pre­mium pro­file as Dun­can Creek, this pop­u­lar and excit­ing mus­ca­dine wine has a clean and clear essence of peach nec­tar. A charm­ing sweet wine to be enjoyed any­time of the year! 12.5% Alco­hol, 6% Resid­ual Sugar.

Spring Blos­som: The same pre­mium pro­file as Dun­can Creek, this rose mus­ca­dine wine will enliven your senses with the unique essence of fresh straw­ber­ries. A nice clean and crisp taste to be enjoyed any­time of the year! 12.5% Alco­hol, 6% Resid­ual Sugar.

Autumn Blush: The same pre­mium pro­file as Dun­can Creek, this delight­ful light bod­ied wine exudes a light red hue as lovely as its clean and crisp taste. It fills your mouth with del­i­cate and pleas­ant rasp­berry notes. A per­fect wine for any­time of the year! 12.5% Alco­hol, 6% Resid­ual Sugar.

Chardon­nay Reserve 2013: 100% from Chardon­nay grapes, fer­mented in stain­less steel and aged for 6 months in oak: 50% in new French bar­rels and 50% in neu­tral bar­rels. Despite the smooth­ness imparted by the bar­rel aging, our chardon­nay is very vibrant and crisp. Very bal­anced, with a medium body and deep fin­ish. Ele­gantly oaked, it shows all the nuances of the Chardon­nay vari­eties with a back­ground of toasted sweet vanilla.

Pinot Gri­gio 2012: Pinot Gri­gio is one of the most famous and pop­u­lar white wine, my ver­sion is very aro­matic, with fla-​vors of lemon grass, arugula, and cit­rus. Crisp and refresh­ing, it is dry, very min­eral, with a medium body. From grapes grown in Yolo county in Cal­i­for­nia, it pairs beau­ti­fully with seafood dishes, pizza, grilled chicken, and lob­ster, as well as light cheeses or pasta. 13.8% Alcohol.

Sauvi­gnon Blanc Reserve 2012: Very aro­matic and exotic, our Sauvi­gnon Blanc has rich fla­vors of grape­fruit, nec­tarine, lemon­grass, and green apple.

It pairs per­fectly with chicken or turkey as well as seafood such as tilapia, sea bass, had­dock, trout, and shell­fish. 13.5% Alcohol.

Belle Reserve 2013: Blend between 7 vari­eties (VIOG­NIERMOSCATOSEMI­L­LONVERDEJOTOCAJCHARDON­NAYMUS­CA­DINE), pre­dom­i­nant grape is the Viog­nier, every­thing else is in equal % in the blend.

Moscato D’Asti D.O.C.G 2013: A true Ital­ian wine, made for us by our twin win­ery in Pied­mont, Italy, and avail­able only here at Chateau Elan. Slightly sparkling with dis­tinct notes of peach and orange blos­soms. It is per­fectly tem­pered by the fresh­ness of its refined bub­bles, accom­pa­nied by hints of elder­berry and wis­te­ria, with a sweet white fruit fin­ish. 5.5% Alco­hol, 10% Resid­ual Sugar, this is the only and orig­i­nal Moscato D’Asti.

Brut Reserve: Our Brut Reserve is a method charmat sparkling wine made from 100% Chardonnay grapes harvested in 2013.  It really tastes like the famous Italian Prosecco! Light, fresh, very fruity, and perfect for all occasions.

Red Wines

Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve: This is seriously good Cabernet! A classic expression of the varietal with dark berry fruit on the nose followed by a depth of cocoa and black pepper in the background. A perfect balance of oak on this wine rounds off the profile for an exacting complexity found in only the most premium cabernets.

Pinot Noir 2013 Reserve: 100% from Pinot Noir grapes, it is medium gar­net in the glass; it smells of green herbs, bright flow­ers, and wet dirt with a hint of red berries under­neath. In the mouth it exudes fla­vors of green herbs and for­est berry fruit that are fan­tas­ti­cally bright and juicy. 13.5% Alco­hol, 0.1% Resid­ual Sugar.

Mer­lot Reserve 2010: Made from 100% of our Mer­lot grapes grown in the pres­ti­gious Napa Val­ley Cal­i­for­nia. We took a min­i­mal­is­tic approach to the wine­mak­ing process to pre­serve the orig­i­nal struc­ture and char­ac­ter of this out­stand­ing vari­ety. The result is an intense deep ruby red hue with fla­vors of black­ber­ries, licorice and black cur­rant. Spicy and fruity with a vel­vety mouth feel, it has smooth tan­nins and a strong fin­ish. An excep­tional expres­sion of Mer­lot! 14.5% Alco­hol, 0.1% Resid­ual Sugar.

Mer­lot Reserve 2013: This clas­sic style Mer­lot shows notes of smoked pep­per, sweet tobacco, and dried straw. Despite its tannin-​forward nature, this wine is silky, smooth with a fin­ish that lingers on the palate long after the sip. Pow­er­ful and full bod­ied, our Mer­lot shows just why this vari­etal is one of the top in the world.

Vel­vet Reserve 2013: Com­plex yet easy going, this Zin­fadel and Tan­nat blend can stand alone or pair beau­ti­fully with any meal. Aro­mas of white pep­per, plums, and red fruits dom­i­nate the nose of this wine. Just as the name sug­gests, this light bod­ied wine goes down just like vel­vet, prov­ing per­fect for any occasion.

Scar­let Reserve 2013: This is a beau­ti­ful blend of Syrah and San­giovese; a com­plex wine with the per­fect bal­ance of earth and fruit notes.

Port Ris­erva: This is a ruby style Port. Young, fresh, fruity, vibrant, and strong, this port bal­ances the resid­ual sugar with a high acid­ity level that works superbly with the high alco­hol con­tent. Deep ruby red, intense nose and full bod­ied, you can enjoy it now or 20 years from now. 18.5% Alco­hol, 8% Resid­ual Sugar.
