Shinn Estate Vineyards First Fruit Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

So named as it's the first variety harvested every year, First Fruit is biodynamically and sustainably ripe, fresh, juicy and is the vino-epitome of a sun-filled Long Island day. With grapes carefully tended by the indefatigable Barbara Shinn (crowned one of the top 6 female farmers in America by the New York Times), this wine is a treat for locavores and sauv. blanc-avores alike.

At Shinn Estate Vineyards, growing a great wine is accomplished through gathering many diverse elements and combining them in harmony - Our vineyard practices are based on an ever-increasing diversity of plant material and beneficial insects. Our cover crop between vine rows contains as many as 25 species, while the vine plantings consist of numerous selections within each variety. We harvest and ferment our selections separately, blending them into a finished wine only after many blending trials. In the cellar, we use several French coopers for the barrels, and oak from several forests, all of which impart their individual aging characteristics to the Wine - From the vineyard floor to the bottle, our wines are the result of the diverse ecosystem we have created on the estate, coupled with meticulous winemaking and gentle aging in the cellar.
