In yesterday’s New York Times, Howard Goldberg offers a nice roundup of Long Island sauvignon blanc.
This is, I think, one of Goldberg’s best pieces in a while. He tasted, I assume blindly, a wide array of local sauvignon and ranks them.
I don’t think that I’ve had all of the wine mentioned, but for the ones that I have had my rankings would be very similar. I’d probably move the Macari up a notch but otherwise, I think I agree almost completely.
Sauvignon blanc plays second fiddle to chardonnay way too often around here. I really think we’re going to see some great sauvignon coming out of Long Island in years to come.
