Jamesport Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc North Fork 2010

Member Review by LennThompson:

The nose is a melange of tropical fruits—mango, papaya, kiwi and passionfruit—with a little grapefruit accented by subtle smoky oak and just a little herbaceousness. Ripe peach, passionfruit and mango flavors greet the palate with terrific acidity and a clean, lingering finish. It's fresh and fruity without being like fruit salad, and offers a little depth and interest without being over-oaked like many California Fume Blancs.

A refreshing and mouthwatering Sauvignon Blanc bursting with gooseberry and herbs. Perfect with light fare.

Many Long Island wineries focus on the red wines of Bordeaux--particularly Merlot--and the white wine of Burgundy--Chardonnay. They are, by far, the two most planted varieties. Jamesport Vineyards is a little different. They make Merlot and Chardonnay of course--the market demands them. But, they also have a well established Pinot Noir program and consider the white wine of Bordeaux, Sauvignon Blanc, a specialty. Most local Sauvignon is reared entirely in stainless steel tanks, which highlights the fruit character and results in fresh, lip-smacking wines that tend to be straight-forward no matter how delicious. Jamesport's winemaker, Les Howard, ferments 62% of this wine in stainless steel with 35% in 132-gallon puncheons and 3% in oak barrels. The nose is a mélange of tropical fruits--mango, papaya, kiwi and passion fruit--with a little grape fruit accented by subtle smoky oak and just a little herbaceousness. Ripe peach, passion fruit and mango flavors greet the palate with terrific acidity and a clean, lingering finish. It's fresh and fruity without being like fruit salad, and offers a little depth and interest without being over-oaked like many California Fume Blancs. It's easy to see why Jamesport focuses on this variety. They do it extremely well.
