The critics are in… “Shinn Estate is one of my favorite Long Island producers. Its wines always seem alive in the glass, energetic and full of pleasure, and this sauvignon blanc is no different. It’s light and tangy, almost succulent, with fresh fruit flavors. It’s called “First Fruit” because its sauvignon blanc grapes are the first to be harvested each year.” – Eric Asimov, The New York Times

Composition 100% Sauvignon Blanc Tasting Notes Lime / Kiwi / White Grapefruit / Melon / Ginger / Guava / White Flowers Food Pairing It is a perfect wine to be paired with the bounty of fresh fish and shellfish harvested locally on the North Fork. Fresh Fish / Shellfish / Sushi Total Production 244 cases Winemaking Notes We call this wine First Fruit because it is the first fruit that we harvest from our vineyard every year. Our sauvignon blanc is freshly aromatic with musque aromas in addition to lime, kiwi, white grapefruit and melon complexed with minerality and balanced acidity. Classic flavors of ripe pear, Grapefruit, fig, and herbs combine with classic minerality on the finish to create a wine best paired with the bounty of fresh fish and shellfish harvested locally on the North Fork Hand harvested, fermented with natural yeast, no sulfur at harvest.  Both clones were fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. Sauvignon Musque grapes were destemmed and cold soaked overnight prior to pressing.
