Sauvignon Blanc Mudd West Vineyard 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

From the dynamite 2010 vintage we have to offer a delicious, dry, expressive, bright, flavorful, jewel-like white wine. Sauvignon Blanc has always been important in our portfolio and is becoming more and more important in general on the East End of Long Island. Our 2010 Mudd West Sauvignon Blanc has persistent deliciousness. It is fresh, unoaked and offers clarity and purity of Sauvignon Blanc fruit. This wine was hand-harvested, whole cluster pressed and fermented in Stainless steel tanks. It did not go through malo-lactic fermentation.

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

citrusy grassy nose, finish is full of green apple and basil. Great light wine.



Tasting Notes:

There is pronounced intensity of aromas and flavors, long length, complexity of fruit character and wonderful balance of crisp acidity, medium body, balanced alcohol and texture and fruit expression. The Mudd West bottling emphasizes the greener aspects of Sauvignon Blanc with aromas and flavors of cut grass and hay, herbs, lime, lots of white grapefruit, minerals and in 2010 a dash of white pepper! This wine is delicious, racy and fun.
