100% Gewürztraminer, from the North Fork AVA, Long Island, New York State. Sustainably farmed.
Carpé Vino (Seize the Wine) was founded by Joshua Carp, a North Fork grape grower with an intimate knowledge of the region and of the continuous care involved in producing fine wine.
VINIFICATION: To extract more complexity and nuance from the Gewzürztraminer grapes used to make this wine, these sustainably grown grapes were de-stemmed and fermented in small lots for seven days, with three punch downs a day.
TASTING NOTES: This light-bodied skin contact white, or Orange wine, is made from the aromatic Gewürztraminer grape. It has aromas of White Flowers and Lychee. On the palate it has notes of Rose Petals, Turkish delight, w/ hints of Passionfruit and Grapefruit, w/ a complex, fresh palate driven by tea-like tannins. Medium finish. Only 89 cases made.
FOOD PAIRING: This wine will go beautifully as an Aperitif, or with local Sea Food, Shellfish, flavorful White Meats, & Spicy dishes.
