Floral Terranes Cabernet Franc, North Fork of Long Island 2022

Two Long Island natives, Erik and Benford, have been slowly and quietly searching out this landscape, using Erik’s 18th century home in Rosyln as their base and (literally) garage winery. Using backyards vineyards farmed organically by locals and natural methods in their winemaking, Floral Terranes is a winery to look out for future vintages. Their production is tiny so run, don't walk. 

Notes on the vintage from Vom Boden:

They direct-pressed about half of this wine (the other half had some maceration) and so the wine reads ultra-light and fresh. At 12% on the label, the wine reads more 11.5% - it is light and fresh almost like a white wine, though the palate is awash in a tart and soil-inflected red fruit. The back-end of the palate reveals the wine's Cabernet-Franc-ness, with spice and pepper. Long Island meets Loire meets Savoie? Maybe something like this. Only 300 liters made.

Grape: Cabernet Franc
