NY Times wine writer Eric Asimov is a fan, and so are we. Husband and wife team, Barbara Shinn and David Page, came from a NYC restaurant background, they chucked it all and moved to LI to make subtle, terroir-driven wine, made from Bordeaux varieties. Blackberry and touches of blueberry fruit on the palate with a touch of Cab Franc goodness on the finish, from the best producer on Long Island.
Montinore practices biodynamic farming because they feel it consistently produces some of the best fruit. Dry, aromatic and crisp with hints of lemon on the palate.
Bright boysenberry and raspberry aromas lead into fruity flavors with a gently spicy finish to make it a real crowd pleaser.

This wine comes from Yorkville's Randle Hill Vineyard, which encompasses steep terraces, rocky hillsides and gentle knolls. These different growing conditions lead to an interesting complexity with aromas of grapefruit, citrus and lime with crisp, clean fruity flavors including an underlying minerality. A truly delicious California Sauvignon Blanc that we prefer to many of the pricier version from Napa.
