Channing Daughters Sauvignon Blanc North Fork Mudd Vineyard 2010
Grassy. Very smooth, buttery while still a bit citrusy.
Mild peachy aroma, perfume. Oaky lightly buttered body. Mineral finish
Fresh citrus notes little lime, Light little apple refreshing and simple
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.

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."
Food Pairings for Channing Daughters Sauvignon Blanc North Fork Mudd Vineyard
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.
