Channing Daughters White Blend the Hamptons Mosaico 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

We are thrilled to release the next vintage of our delicious white wine Mosaico. Mosaico is an exotic field blend that comes from a complanted block in our Sylvanus vineyard on our estate in Bridgehampton. This is a dry white wine where all the varieties were grown, harvested, pressed and fermented together in a stainless steel tank (64%) and Slovenian and French oak barrels (36%). All the fruit was hand-picked and whole cluster-pressed, (except the Muscat which was fermented on its skins and blended back in).

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

32% Pinot Grigio 29% Chardonnay 14% Sauvignon Blanc 12% Muscat 7% Tocai Friulano and 6% Gewurztraminer. ORGANIC. There is great intensity of flavor and a wonderfully lengthy spicy finish.



Tasting Notes:

This is a texturally delicious and aromatically unique white wine. Try this wine with all manner of fish and shellfish dishes as well as vegetables and white meats that incorporate exotic and /or aromatic seasoning and spices.
