2017 Sauvignon Blanc — Mudd Vineyard, North Fork of Long Island AVA

JULY WINE CLUB EXCLUSIVE

Our Mudd Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc has become a CDW classic…a staple that gets snatched up very quickly. Our 2017 Mudd Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is a clean, crisp, aromatic dry white wine that displays mineral, citrus, stone and tree fruit flavors and aromas. This wine was fermented entirely in stainless steel. This wine 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 the Haven Loam with some portions being Riverhead Sandy Loam. As always, all the fruit was hand-picked, whole cluster-pressed, handled minimally and bottled by gravity on March 12th, 2018. Our 2017 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 2017 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. Our 2017 Mudd Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 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 2017 and we only made 408 cases. 1 case max per customer.
