Winemaker's Notes

In keeping with the chateau tradition, Raphael produces a small quantity of white wine. Handpicked, ripe Sauvignon Blanc grapes are pressed in our wooden basket press, then fermented entirely in stainless steel at very cold temperatures in order to capture the essence of the fresh fruit. The result is a wine driven by intense floral and herbal elements and natural acidity - the basis of the Long Island style for this variety. Fruit flavors evident include pink grapefruit, gooseberries, kiwis and lime. The perfect accompaniment to scallops, mussels, shrimp and other local seafood.
