Channing Daughters Chardonnay Scuttlehole 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"We love Chardonnay! Often we crave a pure, clean style that celebrates the fruit of our region and is very versatile at the table. Our 2013 Scuttlehole Chardonnay certainly fits the bill. This is a captivating and salivatingly delicious 100% Chardonnay. This wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks with no malo-lactic fermentation resulting in a dry wine with flavors and aromas of minerals, apples, pears, citrus fruit and lemon curd. This fresh, unoaked wine is medium-bodied with balanced acidity and alcohol. The wine is wonderfully juicy with the textural interplay of both linearity and roundness that provides great pleasure and interest. There is a creaminess that is unmistakably Chardonnay. As always the fruit for this wine was hand-picked, whole cluster-pressed, handled minimally and bottled by gravity. The Chardonnay (from the classic Dijon clones) was harvested from vineyards on both the North and South forks, thus the Long Island AVA. Our Scuttlehole Chardonnay continues to be a favorite restaurant by the glass pour due to its unbelievable versatility in food pairing and our 2013 Scuttlehole Chardonnay continues the tradition of boundless pairing potential at the table. Comfortable with either complimentary or contrasting flavors, try this wine with crisp, briny shellfish or oily bluefish and wild salmon; fresh cheeses, a citrus roast chicken or a fresh salad with duck confit. We encourage you to experiment with our Scuttlehole Chardonnay as it is so adaptable, versatile and delicious." -Winemaker's Notes

Atlantic breezes cool our vineyards creating a climate hospitable to a wide array of fascinating grape varieties. At Channing Daughters we grow and create wines from the white varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Tocai Friulano, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat Ottonel, Malvasia, Gewurztraminer, and Pinot Bianco, and the red varieties Merlot, Blaufrankisch, Pinot Noir, Dornfelder, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Soon the reds Teroldego, Refosco and Lagrein will join them. We are the only winery on the East End growing and producing wines from many of these grapes. Our home is a beautiful plot of land in Bridgehampton that contains twenty-five acres of vines, our small winery and tasting room. We source about fifty percent of our grapes from special sites and people on the North Fork. We allow our wines to naturally express the earth that grows them. Small and unique vineyard lots of grapes are fermented and bottled separately, bearing a Vineyard Designation and Appellation of Origin. Channing Daughters is proud to produce wines bearing all three Long Island AVA’s. The North Fork of Long Island, The Hamptons, and Long Island are all utilized. Whether it is a varietal Sauvignon Blanc from the Mudd Vineyard on the North Fork, Blaufrankisch from our Sylvanus Vineyard on our Estate in Bridgehampton or a blend of varieties and vineyards like our Vino Bianco, which bears a Long Island AVA, we believe in celebrating the place, vineyards and region from which we are lucky enough to produce wine. We are also grateful to be working with mature vineyards. Our own Sculpture Garden Vineyard was planted in 1982 and the Mudd Vineyard on the North Fork (one of our most prized sources) was planted between 1975 and 1983. Read less
