Winemaker's Notes

The 2007 vintage was one of the finest ever experienced on the North Fork. Hot sunny days and with clear blue skies seemed to be the norm for most days. Low levels of rainfall and humidity throughout the season made for almost perfect growing conditions. The high levels of solar radiation along with cooler weather in the late summer and fall allowed great retention of aromatics in the fruit. Sandy gravel soil predominates the area of our Sauvignon Blanc planting, allowing this variety to achieve complete ripeness and achieve its unique local style.

Our Sauvignon Blanc exhibits the refreshing and aromatic white wine style of the North Fork. Fermented completely in stainless steel at 45 degrees F. to retain the bright, fruity aromatics. 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.
