2015 Sauvignon Blanc - Mudd Vineyard, North Fork of LI

Our Mudd Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc has become a CDW classic...a staple that gets snatched up very quickly. Our 2015 Mudd Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is a clean, crisp dry white wine that displays mineral, citrus, stone and tree fruit aromas and flavors. This wine was fermented entirely in stainless steel tanks with no malo-lactic fermentation and was made from the fruit of some of the oldest Sauvignon Blanc vines on Long Island, which were planted in 1975 on their own roots! The soil in the Mudd Vineyard is mostly Haven Silt Loam with some portions being Riverhead Fine Sandy Loam. As always, all the fruit was hand-picked, whole cluster-pressed, handled minimally and bottled by gravity. Our 2015 version is 100% Sauvignon Blanc. This is a dynamic wine exhibiting medium body, moderate alcohol, juicy acidity and a long lasting, persistent finish with beautiful subtlety and delicacy. The 2015 Mudd Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is fresh, vibrant, precise and alive! It possesses flavors and aromas of white grapefruit, lime, herbs, cut grass, tangy white peach, a chalky, salty minerality and even some hints of tropical fruits and white flowers. It is just plain delicious and will match well with local oysters and clams, fresh chevre, spring onions and ramps, charcuterie, asparagus and egg dishes as well as most white fleshed fish. Don't wait this year, as yields were down a bit in 2015 and we only made 588 cases. 1 case max per customer.
