2015 Tocai Friulano – Sylvanus Vineyard

We are excited to offer you the new vintage of our Tocai Friulano from our home farm in Bridgehampton from the Sylvanus Vineyard. We are one of just a couple of producers growing and making Tocai Friulano on the East End of Long Island (2 distinct vineyard-designated wines to boot!), and one of only a handful in the United States.  Our Sylvanus Vineyard Tocai was harvested by hand, whole cluster-pressed and fermented and raised in 62% stainless steel barrels and 38% older French and Slovenian oak for five months. This white grape is native to the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region in Northeast Italy and our version offers wonderful aromas and flavors of green and yellow apples, white grapefruit, marcona almonds, minerals, talc, Asian pears and spice. Our Tocai is pale straw in color with gold/green reflections, the wine is bone dry and possesses a medium body, moderate alcohol, juicy acidity and great persistence on the long flavorful finish. Our Tocai has a great mouthfeel and manages the very gratifying textural paradox of a light, fresh, aromatic wine with a weighty, fleshy, fluidity that is just delightful. Our 2015 Tocai Friulano Sylvanus Vineyard was bottled by gravity on December 16th 2016, and enjoyed the benefits of some time in the bottle before release.  This is the quintessential prosciutto wine and also works well with other hams, salumi, fresh cheeses, fricos, pastas and risotto. Also white fleshed fish dishes and our local clams (in pasta, casino, baked, raw and on a pizza!) are a tasty match.  We hope you enjoy this delicious and unique white wine. 2 bottle max per customer (sorry we only produced 145 cases of this wine and it will be gone swiftly).
