Mudd Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Mudd Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: This Sauvignon Blanc, from some of the oldest vines on Long Island, is virtually springtime in a glass. This is a fresh, vibrant, balanced light bodied white wine full of grapefruit, citrus and mineral flavors. As always this wine was hand-harvested from old vines and whole-cluster pressed lightly in a bladder press. The must was settled overnight and the juice was then fermented in a stainless steel tank and stainless steel barrels. The wine was handled very gently and gravity bottled in the winter after harvest to protect these delicate qualities. Drink this delicious wine on its own or with fresh goat and sheep’s milk cheeses, vegetable dishes and all varieties of fish and shellfish. $

Varietal Definition
Sauvignon Blanc:
Sauvignon Blanc is widely grown in California — at over 15,000 acres, it’s now the third most planted variety — and often assumes the moniker ‘Fume Blanc’. This popular synonym, credited to Napa’s Robert Mondavi, derives from the grape’s historic home of Pouilly in France’s Upper Loire Valley, where Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant varietal and goes locally by the name of ‘Blanc Fumé’. When treated with respect and afforded suitable growing conditions, Sauvignon Blanc is one of the wine world’s darlings. Steely, racy acidity, green, gooseberry fruit, asparagus and a grassy, herbaceous character characterize dry wines made from this grape.
