Staff Pick Notes

I love wines from the North Fork of Long Island, so I was overjoyed to see a new producer join our collection here at Astor. I was especially excited to discover that this wine is a gorgeous, skin-contact spontaneous fermentation Sauvignon Blanc (with supporting cast additions of Gewürztraminer, Pinot Grigio, and Merlot for good measure) that sees two weeks on the skins. A complex nose of stone fruits, poached pear, and rummy strawberry zabaione got me really excited for a crunchy green apple palate with suggestions of ciders and tropical fruits. “We are a small, artisanal brand focusing on premium quality with minimal-intervention winemaking. Like a wild rabbit, our wine is an expression of pure nature. We hope you enjoy its unbridled beauty in every glass.” Runaway rabbit, you ran away with my heart. Only seventy-three cases produced.
