Peconic Bay Winery North Fork of Long Island Steel Fermented Chardonnay 2004

External Review by Appellation America:

<i>Peconic Bay</i> — If you're from Long Island, you've had the famous scallops — but have you had the wines?Winemaker Greg Gove crafts a wide range of wines — from unquestionably sweet, entry-level wines to simple, good-value blends, to vintage-dependant quality reds, to some of the best locally made aromatic whites. If dry, focused wines are your cup of tea (or wine) try Gove's 2004 Steel Fermented Chardonnay. Before you tell me you don't like Chardonnay — just try this one. Reared completely in stainless steel tanks, this wine is a pure, unadulterated expression of the Chardonnay grape. Lemony-fresh on the nose with hints of tangerine zest, the palate features terrific, bright acidity balanced with soft citrus fruit flavors and a clean, appetite-whetting finish. At $13 this is one of Long Island's best wine values – and one that belongs right next to those Peconic Bay scallops.

The grapes, the progeny of the soil, are the key to any successful winer y. At Peconic Bay Winery, we have been entrusted with the care and nurturing of some of the oldest vines on the North Fork, a precious legacy. These fine assets, in the hands of individuals passionate about coaxing the best from the vine and the cellar, set the stage at our vineyard for the creation of premium varietal wines. We are committed to making wines of distinction from rolling acres of vineyards, sloping gently down to the Peconic Bay and rising majestically up to the Long Island Sound, in this bucolic corner of heaven known as the North Fork. We hope to make the experience of tasting our wines enjoyable and memorable for both the connoisseur and those with a more casual appreciation of wine. We look forward to welcoming you at Peconic Bay Winery on the Main Road in Cutchogue. Our wines are the product of the soil and mild climate of Cutchogue, Long Island, the town with the most days of sunshine and the longest growing season in New York State. Read less
