New York Sauvignon Blanc

Now this may be something of a departure, recommending a New York white that is not Riesling, but I do believe that Long Island has great potential with Sauvignon Blanc, and being a native of the region I have both a bit of regional pride as well as many fond memories of Independence Days celebrated out on Long Island. Long Island has struggled with an identity since its birth as a wine region, with a climate that resembles that of Bordeaux, and soils composed of glacial moraine that might be compared to the gravels of Bordeaux, it was thought that this would prove to be a great spot for the grapes of Bordeaux, with a distinct focus on the reds.

While the region has produced some lovely reds over the years, how about the whites of Bordeaux, wouldn't they prove to be at least as well suited to the region? Well, to my mind even better and Long Island Sauvignon Blanc, with old world character and a just a hint of new world fruit, are poised to make a big splash and Macari is leading the way. This is just a lovely wine, as good as just about anybody's Sauvy, but I do know it it not that easy to find, so make an effort! It's great with fish, pasta salads, and of fresh goat cheeses.
