COCK OF THE WALK WHITE
Sakonnet Vineyards has pioneered the production of fine wines in Southern New England for thirty-five years. All of our estate wines reflect the favorable maritime climate found along Rhode Island’s beautiful coast.
This medium-bodied wine has a bright straw color, with citrus, floral and almond aromas. The absence of oak allows the natural acidity to balance the richness of the Chardonnay, which is three quarters of the blend. The Gewurztraminer contributes
both spiciness and white grapefruit flavors.
The wine pairs well with rich cheeses due to its body and mouthfeel. Examples are brie, gorgonzola and triple cream. Chicken alfredo, seafood in butter or cream sauces, gnocchi and roasted meats are also appropriate. The Gewurztraminer component lends itself to spicy cuisine or dishes with soy and teriyaki.
The blend includes Pinot Grigio, which contributes the tartness of a Granny Smith Apple; the traditional peppery finish of our Gewurtztraminer; and the mellow melon tones of Chardonnay. The result? A truly delicious wine that can hang with seafood, chicken, creamy pasta or with cheese. This beauty will even strut its stuff all by itself!
