TASTING NOTES: Medium-bodied and pleasantly aromatic, our Stony Brook Blush is a light and fruity wine with accents of cherries and strawberries. Great with appetizers, mild cheeses, ham, turkey, and fruit salads. Serve chilled.
THE GRAPE: Stony Brook Blush is based on the red Chambourcin grape vinified as white wine (blanc de noirs). Chambourcin is an experimental interspecific grape variety (resistant to vine diseases) created around 1950 by Joannes Siebel. See our Rosso della Valle description for more information.
VINTNER'S NOTE: although named "blush" after more common North American sweet "pink wine", I consider this wine a typical European style rosé with a crisp, acidic, and dry flavor profile.
BLEND: 80% Chambourcin (vinified as white) 20% Vidal Blanc
VINEYARD SIZE: 1.5 acres
YEARLY PRODUCTION: 150-200 cases
