Channing Daughters Sauvignon Blanc North Fork Mudd Vineyard 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

As always all the fruit was hand-picked, whole-cluster pressed, handled minimally and bottled by gravity. As we often do a small amount of Chardonnay is blended in for aromatic, flavor and textural complexity.

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

Grassy. Very smooth, buttery while still a bit citrusy.

Citrus on the nose. Very light and crisp with a hint of green apple with a nice tart citrus finish.

A super-pale greenish yellow in the glass, the nose is extremely expressive with ripe grapefruit and lime aromas accented by distinct minerality. Flavorful and light bodied, those same fruit and mineral characteristics carry over to a refreshing, begging-for-fresh-seafood palate.

Citrusy and lightly floral on the nose, with fresh spring herbs in the mix as well. The tart acidity of the first two wines is less apparent here without losing any freshness. Complex and flavorful, I taste a wide array of fruit flavors — grapefruit, passion fruit, ripe melon — and 5% fermentation in new Slovenian oak brings subtle sweet spice accents.

97% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Musque clone Chardonnay. ORGANIC. Intense juicy grapefruit lime green melon mineral and white flower are the primary smells and flavors of this clean expressive youthful wine. There is great balance of crisp natural acidity medium body moderate alcohol and classic intense Sauvignon fruit character.

This South Fork Sauvignon has good varietal character, balance, ripeness, mineral notes and crisp acidity. This white clearly speaks of the region and fine work from Channing Daughters.

Here is what Howard Goldberg of The New York Times had to say about Long Island's finest Sauvignon Blanc: "The sauvignon blanc grapes in the Channing Perrine sauvignon ($18) came from vines planted at Mudd Vineyard, in Southold, in 1975; they are among the Island's oldest. (Perrine is Larry Perrine, the president and chief executive of the winery, in Bridgehampton.)" "The sauvignon is a whirligig of tropical-fruit aromas and flavors, notably grapefruit, and of coconut notes and herbs... Sip after sip, the bright acidity zings the palate, cleansing it for the next appetite-sharpening round, while the soft texture caresses the palate."



Tasting Notes:

This is a clean, crisp dry white wine that displays mineral and citrus fruit flavors and aromas. This is a delicious wine with beautiful subtlety and delicacy. It is less green and herbaceous than past vintages and the warm, dry 2010 vintage has given the wine a rounder texture with more plumpness and a distinctive tree and stone fruit character, with apples, pears and white peaches co-mingling with the citrus fruit and mineral qualities.

As always all the fruit was hand-picked, whole-cluster pressed, handled minimally and bottled by gravity. As we often do a small amount of Chardonnay is blended in for aromatic, flavor and textural complexity.
