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:
From a tiny unnamed site deep in Long Island, rich with clay and glacial deposits, comes this Merlot-based rosé. A perfect winter rosé, the wine has juicy red fruit with soil tones. It has a swagger, fresh, but sexy too, all herbal and savory, saffron and salt and mineral. I like the glowing quality of it – beautiful color. Soulful wine.
