Millbrook Tocai Friulano 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Varietal Notes: Tocai Friulano is the grape widely planted in the Friuli region located in the northeastern corner of Italy. Because of similar growing conditions to the Friuli region, and Tocai's winter "hardiness", Millbrook's plantings have proven to be extremely successful. Winemaking Notes: Cool fermentation and aging in stainless steel tanks were techniques utilized to preserve varietal charcter and freshness through the mid-palate and finish. Tasting Notes: Enticing aromas of pineapple and kiwi lead to full round flavors of golden raisin, leechy nut, citrus and pear with a nice acidity on the finish. Food Pairing Notes: Serve with Asian cuisine, antipasto, shellfish, prosciutto with melon. Technical Notes: Appellation: Hudson River Region Varietal: 100% Tocai Friulano Growing Conditions: Warm spring and summer with moderate rainfall. Cool, average harvest conditions. Harvest: October 10 - Nov. 6, 2006 Brix: 22.3 degrees Alcohol: 13% Bottling Date: May 3, 2007 Production: 880 Cases Return to Millbrook wine list

offers floral, melony aromas and hints of minerals and kiwi fruit. Clean, medium bodied and well balanced, it's a lovely white that shows just-ripe honeydew melon and kiwi flavors with subtle acidity. Serve it with antipasto or as an aperitif.
