Carpé Vino Sauvignon Blanc (2014)
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Geography: North Fork, Long Island, NY
Winemaker Josh Carp presents wines from the North Fork of Long Island. Carpe Vino captures local terroir at its best. A vineyard manager out on the East End, Josh lives with his family in Brooklyn. It doesn’t get any more local than this.
This is a classic Sauvignon Blanc, crisp and tart with high acidity much like a European white. Made with Long Island grapes it is fermented in stainless steel with no barrel ageing giving a it a sharp focus and flavor intensity. 2014 was dry on the North Fork producing a white with a great citrus finish. This white wine makes a great companion for meals or just sipping at the beach or backyard.
