    Winemaker Notes

    A crisp and semi-dry white wine with a lovely floral bouquet. It has flavors of citrus and pear with a long finish. We suggest serving this wine well chilled as an aperitif or with spicy foods.

    Sharpe Hill, Connecticut, Other U.S.
    Although growing grapes in northeastern Connecticut provides us with some unusual challenges such as a shorter growing seasons and harsh winter weather, our vineyard (which is situated on a 700 foot slope) provides us with a microclimate that mimics many of the wine regions of Europe. In fact, our latitudinal location is comparable to that of Rome, Italy. Our vineyard's microclimate affords us the luxury of growing such vinifera grapes as Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc. We planted our first grapevines in 1992. By the spring of 2003 the vineyard will consist of 20 acres which include plantings of Chardonnay, Melon de Bourgogne, Pinot Blanc, and Vignoles for white wines; and Cabernet Franc, Carmine and St. Criox for red wine. We will continue our vineyard expansion program over the next several years.

    Bordering New York’s scenic Hudson Valley, the Connecticut Highland AVA has a short and cool growing season making it ideal for the cool-climate grape varieties of Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Muscat.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
