Truro Winery Review
|The Truro Vineyards also houses an inn, and is set in a large white house alongside rows of vines. The front door opens onto an area displaying the wine bottles and other items for sale, and further back is an interesting museum-like section with old wine presses and demi-johns in wicker baskets.|
The woman doing the tasting explained that the owners were working on the wines at the moment, and that there were only two wines left in stock! These were a Chardonnay and a Bordeaux-blend called Trilogy. When a few more people arrived, we began our tasting.
|First, the Chardonnay. This is grown in Truro and is fermented with a Champagne yeast. The wine is 50% malolactic as well. It has a very crisp, bright flavor to it, with a chalky undertone.|
The second wine is "Trilogy" - a blend of Cabernet Franc from here, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from California. This was really tasty - a great smoky aroma, rich flavor and long finish. It has a good complexity to it. We bought a bottle of this for our cellar.
We do have a bottle of their blush at home - it was fetched for us by a friend who works in the area. We'll have to try that soon so we can at least try three of their wines! Apparently they sell out very quickly. We've now hit all twelve wineries in Massachusetts, and having also completed Rhode Island, we'll move on to Connecticut next!
