Wine Review: The bouquet of this wine opens with a grapefruit aroma. Very similar to NZ style Sauvignon Blanc. On the palate the wine is acidic, citrusy, and dry. This would be a very refreshing summer wine. The finish is dry and citrusy as well. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Sauvignon Blanc displays the style of this wine on the North Fork. Fermented completely in stainless steel at 45 degrees F. to retain the bright, fruity aromatics. No oak or ml. Crisp and lemony, the bright grapefruit, gooseberry and kiwi fruit flavors are framed by austere mineral notes and lively acidity, making our Sauvignon Blanc the perfect wine to compliment local seafood. The North Fork of Long Island is one of the few wine producing areas that can successfully grow and ripen this variety on the east coast.
