2014 Vino Bianco

Our Vino Bianco is a delicious, symphonic white blend.  This wine celebrates both forks of the East End of Long Island and has since its first vintage in 2001. Likely the first "white blend" in the region, it has inspired a slew of new blends from other producers creating a category in which the Long Island region excels. Our 2014 Vino Bianco is made from 27% Sauvignon Blanc, 23% Pinot Grigio, 29% Tocai Friulano and 21% Chardonnay.  The wine is alive with aromas and flavors of citrus fruit, white flowers, green apples, lemon curd, white peaches, pears, spice and the sea. The wine is juicy and texturally satisfying, succulent, complex, long and beguiling. We believe in blending because it creates complex, complete and ultimately delicious wines. This is demonstrated by the versatility of the wine at the table. Able to pair with shellfish and fish dishes as well as feel comfortable with poultry, veal (vitello tonnato) and even pork, our 2014 Vino Bianco offers a wealth of opportunities and tastes and textures. For this wine all the varieties were harvested and vinified separately and then blended together. The Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in stainless steel. The Tocai, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio were all fermented and raised in a combo of stainless steel, new oak and older oak barrels and hogsheads.  The wine spent ten months on its lees and 428 cases were bottled by gravity on July 30th, 2015.  This wine has benefited some resting in the bottle and is absolutely delicious now and will drink wonderfully for another three to four years. One case max per customer.
