notice our new look? We’ve gone to a different format, with a perfect-bound edge and thicker, matt-finish paper. We hope you’ll agree that this is a change for the better. There are other big changes afoot, too. starting with this issue, we’re ramping up our coverage of local food, with more recipes and wine-pairing recommendations from the region’s finest restaurants. We hope you enjoy our spring 2011 issue with its bold new look. see you at the wineries! Cheers! Jane starwood, editor Long island Wine press

pring gives me time to reflect on the past year, as well as to look forward to the season ahead. The Long Island wine region has had one its best vintages to date (2010). As I write this, the whites are in the bottle and hitting the shelves of your local liquor stores. The reds are aging in the barrel and can be tasted at many Long Island wineries during the month of April. It’s a great way to go behind the scenes and meet winemakers and owners. Visit LIWines.com for details. I’m happy to see that winter is finally a thing of the past — and what a winter it was! We had record snow falls for the first half, while the second half saw record attendance at Winterfest, a six-week jazz series at wineries and hotels. Winterfest has turned into a successful event for our local economy and plans are already under way for next year. On May 5, the Long Island Wine Council will be celebrating its fifth year at Brooklyn Uncorked, a great event that takes L.I. wines to Brooklyn and pairs them with mouthwatering morsels from local restaurants. Also in May, you can join us for “Run for the Rosés,” when the new rosés are unveiled and paired with foods from local restaurants at an event in Greenport. Look for details on Facebook as well as our newly redesigned website, LIWines. com, to be launched in May. To kick off the summer, we will host the second annual Wine & Food Festival. Where else can you can taste wines from top producers and sample tasty treats from great L.I. restaurants? The festival takes place June 12 at Martha Clara Vineyards. It was well attended last year and tickets sold out early. Don’t wait too long to get yours!

Yes, there are many exciting events to look forward to in Long Island Wine Country, but bigger than that is all that’s done to make those events possible — anticipating the weather, tending the vines, bottling the vintages, connecting in the tasting rooms, meeting new friends and visiting old ones. Each is completely different from the next, but one thing is constant and that is the people who love the Long Island wine region. This is a very special place to me. The community I live in was built on agriculture and by the efforts of hard-working individuals. Our community has many great attributes — the land, the water and the people who make this such an amazing place to live. We look at our bucolic surroundings and think this can’t change, but can it? As I look back at the last 30 years, there has been much change. Land once devoted to potatoes has given way to vineyards; our industry has grown to over 50 producers; locally grown food and wine are appearing on many restaurant menus; shellfisheries are thriving and producing some of the finest seafood. Looking forward, I see a thriving agricultural community, working together toward a common goal of protecting our farming heritage. Having a partnership with our local business owners is imperative in keeping the Long Island wine region thriving. When you’re visiting us, take time to enjoy yourself. Slow down, savor the experience and really look at the surroundings. Appreciate the here and now. The North and South forks are indeed unique areas that have much to offer. Ron Goerler Jr., president Long Island Wine Council

Long Island’s new crop of wines arrives
By Tracy EllEn KamEns spring is a time to celebrate new life and new beginnings, so it’s fitting that many wines crafted from the 2010 harvest are making their debut this season, along with a number of other wines that have been slumbering in the cellar. This new crop includes an array of whites, rosés and reds that pair well with spring’s palette of fresh flavors. Onabay Vineyards’ newest release is the 2007 night Heron. Chiara anderson Edmands, onabay’s director of marketing, calls this their best quality red wine, produced from the vaunted Entav clone. differing from its 2006 predecessor, which included small amounts of Cabernet Franc and syrah, the warmer conditions of 2007 enabled onabay to produce a 100% Merlot wine. Chiara notes that night Heron is a wine that “always shocks people because of the quality,” and suggests that “it’s on par with some of the finest wines produced in Bordeaux and a great value.” While not a new release, onabay’s 2007 Unwooded Chardonnay is a great wine for spring. Inspired by the

crisp acidity and fresh fruit of Chablis, this wine sees no wood, but does spend time on the lees, adding to the wine’s texture. With its vibrant acidity, it pairs well with citrus-accented dishes and shellfish. Macari Vineyards’ tasting room welcomed the release of its 2008 Cabernet Franc and 2008 Dos Aguas. Winemaker Kelly Urbanik said that, while 2008 was a difficult vintage in the vineyard, these wines have beautiful balance. as the second Meritage-style blend in Macari’s collection, dos Aguas (70% Merlot, 17% Cabernet sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% petit Verdot) presents with soft tannins and high acidity, although Kelly emphasizes that this is “not a wimpy wine.” serve it with hearty poultry or lighter meat dishes. From the 2010 vintage, Macari’s riesling, rosé and sauvignon Blanc will soon be available. The Finger Lakes riesling shows classic aromas of petrol, honeysuckle and peachy stone fruit. on the palate, it’s dry and citrusy, with nice acidity. represencontinued on page 10

Blanc, Chardonnay and rosé. This year’s Coalescence, a blend of Chardonnay, sauvignon Blanc, white Merlot and white pinot noir, has a much higher proportion of red grapes than in prior years. This shift, coupled with the riper vintage, resulted in a wine with a richer, fuller body, good texture and strawberry and raspberry fruit character that permit it to pair well with meaty fishes and poultry dishes. In contrast, the sauvignon Blanc is much brighter and acidic, making it a good foil for fresh scallops. shinn Estate is offering two new wines: an estate-grown pinot Blanc and an orangecolored wine. The latter is 100% Chardonnay that was fermented on its skins for three to four weeks, imbuing the wine with an orange hue. It was produced from the cooler 2009 vintage, taking advantage of a “perfect storm” of sufficient ripeness, high aromatics and limited alcohol to develop a wine with good structure and tannins, while still exhibiting vibrant acidity and noticeable fruit. shinn’s 2008 reds are also ready for release. shinn’s winemaker, anthony nappa, who also has his own eponymous wine label, will release a 2010 Finger Lakes riesling and 2010 anomaly, a white wine produced from 100% pinot noir. anthony’s debuts include a gewurztraminer and “a very small amount” of 2009 hard, sparkling apple cider. anthony asserts that the gewurztraminer is truly a food wine, with its full body and lychee and spice notes that match well with spicy food,

tative of the 2010 vintage, the rosé (70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 9% Cabernet sauvignon and 6% Malbec) is a big wine with tons of strawberry, cherry and melon

stinky cheeses and fresh fruit. Channing Daughters has a number of newly released wines as well, including its age worthy 2008 L’Enfant sauvage. This aptly named “wild child” Chardonnay is produced with ambient (wild) yeasts and is barrel aged for 18 months, with long lees contact. other recent releases include 2010 Mudd Vineyard sauvignon Blanc, with grapes from steve Mudd’s 1975 vineyard in southold; and 2010 Mudd West Vineyard sauvignon Blanc, with grapes from the 2005 Mudd vineyard in Aquebogue. produced the same way, the wines differ in site and vine age, with the former producing a wine that is plumper, more delicate and restrained, showing tree fruit, white stone fruit, apple, peach and some citrus, while the latter is a more classic sauvignon Blanc with pronounced citrus, cut grass, and white grapefruit. also fresh for spring is Channing Daughters’ 2010 rosé lineup: rosato di Merlot, rosato di Cabernet Franc, rosato di Cabernet sauvignon and rosato di refosco. Due to the quality of the 2010 vintage, winemaker Christopher Tracy describes these rosés as beautifully ripe and particularly expressive, with juicy fruit and a nice, natural acid balance. Channing’s 2009 Due Uve, a blend of 72% syrah and 28% Merlot, is also ready for release. Meant to be a “slightly rustic” wine for everyday drinking, the wine exhibits notes of raspberry, blueberry and lots of black peppercorns with soft, silky tannins. It pairs well with meaty fish, poultry

and game birds. This month Bedell Cellars will launch Taste rosé 2010, the newest in its “Taste” family of wines, whose labels feature Barbara Kruger’s striking artwork. This new rosé coincides with winemaker rich OlsenHarbich’s arrival at Bedell. as a blend (62% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Franc, 7% syrah and 4% petit Verdot), it marks a departure from the past. rich de-

scribes the wine as being very aromatic, with notes of pink grapefruit, guava, papaya and citrus and a slightly herbal and saline character, all wrapped in minerality. Moreover, he lauds the wine’s versatility — he recently enjoyed it with steak — while acknowledging that it pairs best with lighter lunch fare such as niçoise salad and seviche as well as asian and

Mexican cuisines.

Bedell’s 2009 Taste red will be ready soon, too. despite the “challenging weather” that plagued that vintage, rich notes that the wine is really quite elegant. He attributes this to the region’s experience and, more specifically, his vineyard team’s ability to produce high-quality wines in more demanding vintages, saying that they can “play these vineyards like a musical instrument,” knowing when to drop fruit and when to let it hang, to ensure that it ripens well. rich characterized the weather of 2010 as “picture perfect” and says these were wines that were “just so much fun” to produce, since there was no tinkering required. In late spring, Bedell will offer its 2010 gewurztraminer, produced from some of the oldest vines in the region, which rich describes as “explosively aromatic.” The wonderful weather also per-


mitted Bedell to re-release its Viognier. With fruit blended from vineyards at Bedell and its sister site, Corey Creek, the 2010 is “beautiful beyond belief” raves rich, with stone-fruit aromas and flavors that pair well with creamy cheeses and intensely spiced dishes.

Behind What’sWinethe WINerIes the NeW at
The Long Island Wine Council has released a Long Island Wine Country smartphone app, one of the first wine regions in the country to do so. The new app is free via download from the various app stores. The app allows users to find wineries and plan their route using the map feature with gps geo-locating technology. Each winery listing has extensive information about the winery, its wines, hours of operation, contact information, tour information and more. Visitors to the region can also find other important information using the “Dining” and “Accommodations” tabs. It also allows them to browse a list of events at the wineries, keep a list of their favorite wineries, dining spots and places to stay and to share trip information and pictures with friends via Facebook, Twitter or Flickr. Listings available through the app include the 47 member wineries of the Wine Council and more than 60 hotels, inns, bed and breakfasts, restaurants, pastry shops and wine bars. In november, Roanoke Vineyards hosted “The Judgment of riverhead,” a reenactment of the celebrated 1976 wine tasting in paris, “The Judgment of paris.” Wines from California and France faced-off against the best wines of Long Island in a blind tasting. a panel of nine wine and restaurant industry professionals judged the wines. Eighteen wines were tasted; nine Chardonnays (three from each region) and nine reds, focusing on Bordeaux varietals (again, three from each region).

The hottest ticket on the north Fork this winter was the fourth annual “Winterfest: Jazz on the Vine” concert series. presented by the Long Island Wine Council and East End arts Council under the able leadership of LIWC executive director steve Bate and president ron goerler Jr. and EEAC executive director patricia snyder, Winterfest drew about 6,000 jazz-loving, winter-defying souls to 40 concerts at participating wineries and hotels during February and March. “Winterfest Warm-Up” events drew ever-increasing crowds to the Hilton garden Inn on Friday nights, and riverhead’s snazzy new Hotel Indigo was the lively scene of “Live at the indigo” on saturday nights. “inside the Outside of Jazz” discussions were held at Brecknock Hall in greenport, southampton Cultural Center and riverhead’s historic Vail-Leavitt Music Hall. This year’s jazzed-up crowds have raised the hopes of all concerned for an even better Winterfest in 2012, when half the revenue from this year’s ticket sales will go toward funding the ever-popular event.

Jazz! – and all that

Scrimshaw Restaurant greenport Chef rosa ross uses a dry Long island riesling for the sauce that enlivens this delicious salmon recipe. although there are a number of steps to this dish, it’s well worth the effort. rosa uses an all-butter pastry, but says the readily available pepperidge Farm Frozen puff pastry works well. Napoleon of Salmon with Riesling Sauce and Dilled Cucumbers serves 6 For the pastry: 1 package pepperidge Farm puff pastry 1 egg beaten with 1 T. cold water to make an egg wash

defrost the pastry per package directions. preheat the oven to 375° F. Unfold 1 pastry sheet and lay out on a lightly floured work surface. Cut each sheet into 3 along the fold and then each piece into 2 to make 6 pieces. repeat with the second sheet of pastry. You should have 12 rectangular pieces. prick each piece of pastry with a fork and brush with the egg wash. Bake until the pastry has risen and turned golden brown, about 30-40 minutes. remove and set aside. pastry may be baked in advance and held in an airtight container. For the sauce: 2 T. minced shallots

1 T. butter 3/4 cup dry riesling, paumanok or other 2 cups heavy cream salt and white pepper, to taste 1-2 T. minced fresh dill Melt the butter in a saucepan and sauté the shallots until wilted. add the wine, cook for 5 minutes, then add the heavy cream. simmer over low heat until the sauce has thickened and is reduced by half. season to taste and add the dill. set aside. and keep warm. For the cabbage: 2 cups shredded napa cabbage 1/2 tsp. fennel seed salt and pepper to taste

1 cup heavy cream Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. simmer gently over low heat until the cream reduces and thickens, holding together the cooked cabbage. set aside and keep warm. For the salmon: 2-3 lbs. fillet of salmon, without skin olive oil salt and pepper, to taste slice the salmon on a slant to a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Make sure you have 6 servings. place the sliced salmon on an oiled baking pan. sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with oil. roast the salmon in a 350° F oven until just done, about 3-5 minutes. Do not overcook the salmon. remove and keep warm. on one piece of pastry spread a layer of creamed cabbage, place a generous layer of cooked salmon on top of the cabbage, then top with the cream sauce. place another layer of puff pastry to form a napoleon. Top with another spoonful of cream sauce and garnish with dill sprigs. If the napoleons have cooled, they can be reheated in the oven. Dilled Cucumbers 2 long, seedless cucumbers 4 T. butter salt and pepper, to taste 2 tsp. sugar 1 tablespoon rice vinegar Minced dill Cut cucumbers in half lengthwise and slice into half moon shapes. Heat butter in a skillet, add cucumber slices, sprinkle with salt and pepper and the sugar. Toss cucumber slices until lightly cooked, then drizzle with vinegar and dill and serve.
