Floral Terranes Chardonnay, 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 from Vom Boden:

I believe this is only the second time they've released single-vineyard Chardonnay. Yes, this is basically Long Island Montrachet. As with the previous time, the grapes come from Matta Bella in Southold, Long Island. Again, the grapes had about three weeks worth of skin contact before going into barrel. This is a deep Chardonnay, with melon and spice, though there's a lively green edge to the wine, a needle-fresh pine note that gives the wine energy and lift.

Grape: Chardonnay (with skin contact) 

Pairings: Local soft cheeses, Whole grilled striped bass stuffed with lemon and herbs
