An amazing orange wine, made from Long Island fruit by California winemaker Abe Schoener of Scholium Project. An explosive nose of apricot cantaloupe rind and pine resin leads to green apple, stone fruit and baking spice on the palate. Balanced, with noticeable tannins and refreshing acidity, this is a really cool wine.
Geek alert: if you think you've tried everything, this wine is for you. Made by California winemaker Abe Schoener of Scholium Project from skin-fermented, botrytis-affected Riesling, it is fermented fully dry. It is easily one of the most unusual wines we've tried. The nose packs a wallop with honey, caramel and toffee notes leading to a big surprise on the palate, with almond, petrol and stone fruit. Truly unique and not for everyone, try it with a really stinky soft cheese like epoisses.
This fruity, refreshing wine has clean vibrant citrus notes and aromas of strawberry and rasberry. On the palate you'll find plenty of red fruit, and a creamy, viscous texture that is balanced by a bit of acidity, making it a great match for an array of lighter foods.

In 2009 Shinn harvested two rows of Sauvignon Blanc and one row of Semillion, destemmed the fruit and co-fermented on the skins. After a long slow fermentation they moved the wine to 3 year old French oak barrels where it remained for 2 years without topping. A “veil” of yeast formed on the surface of the wine adding unique oxidative complexity. This is basically an orange wine Sherry made on Long Island. It doesn't get much geekier than this, so why not try it?
This is an all stainless steel fermented winemakers blend of sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, white pinot noir, and merlot blanc showcasing a refreshing style with a splash of fruit followed with a zing of acidity. Clean vibrant citrus notes add complexity to the fresh & juicy finish. Winemaking Details: Stainless Steel Tank Fermentation
