Cutting Edge Long Island Wine - The Friday Evening Wine Tasting

 

The Red Hook Winery makes wine from New York State vineyards on the east end of Long Island as well the Finger Lakes, shipping freshly harvested grapes in refrigerated trucks to the winery in Brooklyn.

 

These wines are from forward thinking winemakers known for crafting unique expressions from individual vineyard sites. Techniques like spontaneous fermentations on native yeasts, lees aging, and a lack of technical manipulation is common. The wines have been called "avant-garde" and you might think the wine is exotic, interesting, and completely compelling or perhaps outside the box and weird.

In either case one shouldn't miss out.

The Ste. Agnès White 2015 is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Sémillon that's aged in tank on the lees, stirred a lot, and then lives for a few months in neutral wood. This is pretty straightforward for a Red Hook wine, I get creamy, delicious pear fruit, a very dry, persistent and clean finish.

It's certainly worth trying so get on the cutting edge and enjoy!
