2014 Mosaico

We are thrilled to release the next vintage of our delicious white wine Mosaico. Mosaico is an exotic field blend that comes from a complanted block in our Sylvanus vineyard on our estate in Bridgehampton. Our 2014 Mosaico is comprised of 32% Pinot Grigio, 29% Chardonnay, 14% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Muscat Ottonel, 7% Tocai Friulano and 8% Gewurztraminer. This is a dry white wine where all the varieties were grown, harvested, pressed and fermented together in a stainless steel tank (56%) and new (20%) and older oak barrels (24%).  All the fruit was hand-picked and whole cluster-pressed, except for a couple of bins of the Muscat and Gewurztraminer grapes as well as coupe of bins of all the varieties, which were fermented ambiently/wild on their skins and blended back in (37% on skins). This is a texturally delicious and aromatically unique white wine. The color is a beautiful golden tone with a touch of amber from the skin- fermentation. The flavors and aromas are complex and deep and range from citrus fruit (lemon), tree fruit (pears, apples), stone fruit (peaches, apricots), and tropical fruit (pineapple, mango, lychee)...in addition there are beautiful notes of flowers, honey, brown spices and saline minerality. The wine is medium-bodied, the alcohol and acidity are balanced and the finish is long, clean, persistent and delicious. The 2014 Mosaico spent 18 months on its lees and was bottled by gravity on April 1st, 2016. Try this wine with all manner of fish and shellfish dishes as well as vegetables, chicken, pork or veal sausage and white meats that incorporate exotic and/or aromatic seasoning and spices. Our 2014 Mosaico is delicious now and will offer great drinking opportunities over at least the next five to seven years as our past vintages of Mosaico have been aging effortlessly for 5-8 years. Only 378 cases were produced of the 2014 vintage. 6 bottle max per customer.
