Channing Daughters Syrah Blend the Hamptons Due Uve 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

All the fruit was hand-harvested, de-stemmed into one ton bins, stomped on by foot and punched down by hand. The wine was racked to barrels, hogsheads and puncheons (23% were new, 77% were old) where it spent eight months before a light filtration and gravity bottling

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

Such a refreshing, light and delicate style of Syrah. All the flavor without the usual heaviness. The Dornfelder adds a great earthy, bright fruit balance. Would be wonderful with a slight chill so you can get your red wine on even in humid weather. So appreciate the uniqueness of this.

Black pepper. Juicy, barely tannic. A little spicy.

Another winner from winemaker Christopher Tracy, this red blend highlighting Syrah is light and spicy with mocha coffee on the nose and juicy fruit and black pepper on the palate. It has long lingering flavors with a tasty touch of tannin on the end.

Tasting Notes:

Our 2009 Due Uve is a translucent ruby red color with purple inflections. The wine is dry, medium-bodied and juicy, has moderate alcohol and is fresh and delicious. There are floral, fruit, mineral and spice components that comprise the flavor and aroma profiles. Violets, black pepper, raspberry, blackberry, cherry, wet stone, cocoa and cinnamon are descriptors that come to mind but more often than not you smell and taste something new each time you re-visit the glass. This wine possesses lightness and elegance but is robust and rustic enough to tackle some exotic flavor experiences.

All the fruit was hand-harvested, de-stemmed into one ton bins, stomped on by foot and punched down by hand. The wine was racked to barrels, hogsheads and puncheons (23% were new, 77% were old) where it spent eight months before a light filtration and gravity bottling
