Today I am going to talk about one of my favorite things: wine!
Yes wine may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of New York, but areas like the Finger Lakes and Niagara are doing some fantastic things with wine and as whole, the state is the 4th largest wine producer in the United States! Definitely not the first place you would think to look for a vineyard, but lo and behold, Long Island is producing some excellent wines too.
Last year, Lieb Cellars in Cutchogue rolled out a line of tasty yet affordable boxed wines under their Bridge Lane line. Each Bridge Lane boxed wine costs $40 and contains the equivalent of four bottles of wine. Boxes retain their freshness up to one month after being opened.
The 2014 Lieb Cellars Bridge Lane White Blend is a light bodied, dry wine with no residual sugar, does not undergo malolactic fermentation and is aged in 100% stainless steel. All of this makes for a very fresh wine that despite being dry (not sweet) still features a ton of delicious fruit. Highly aromatic on the nose, the wine features abundant aromas of lemon, tangerine and apricot. All that fruit continues when tasting this well structured wine. Tangy citrus and tropical fruit lead into the dry, long, slightly chalky, mouthwatering finish. Excellent and highly recommended!
Composition: 35% Chardonnay, 26% Pinot Blanc, 20% Riesling, 15% Sauvignon Blanc, 4% White Pinot Noir
