Shinn Estate Vineyards 2012 Sauvignon Blanc

SEV 2012 SB

Summer has been in full effect for the last month or so.  The triple H’s are on the island.  And here at Notrog Cellars that means that we better have enough sauvignon blanc to wet our whistle while we relax in our back yard.

2011 was a tough year for some whites here on long island, it was even tougher for some reds.  The lack of interesting and delicious white wines from our neck of the woods may be the number one reason I shifted my attention to beer.

The 2012 vintage for white wines, seems to be off to a great start from what I read and from the few I have tasted recently.  One sauvignon blanc that is going to be in rotation here is Shinn Estate Vineyards 2012 First Fruit ($23).

The nose bring aromas of grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruit, pear minerality and a hint of fresh-cut herbs.  The palate offers hits of gooseberry, citrus and salinity.  Packed with acidity, this clean, balance and refreshing white wine is one that will go nicely with some grilled fish or chicken.

Make sure you serve this just off chill to bring out more of its fresh deliciousness.
