New Wine Releases from Corey Creek Tap Room

May 1 @ 12:00 pm 5:00 pm

Corey Creek Tap Room’s female winemaker, Marin Brennan has released two new wines; Auxerrois 2022 and Old Vine Rosé 2022, which are both currently available for purchase. The Auxerrois 2022 features ancient grapes of Alsace, which were hand-harvested from a single one-acre vineyard on the estate.

After harvesting by hand, a majority of the juice was fermented with wild yeast in stainless-steel, while a portion of the clusters were spread on straw mats for two months to encourage dehydration and the concentration of sugar. The process called “appassimento,” has been used for centuries in Italy to produce Amarone. After losing almost 50% of their water, the dried grapes were crushed, and wild-fermented separately. Both lots were blended prior to bottling, resulting in a beautiful and elegant white wine. The only varietal Auxerrois produced in New York.

The Auxerrois is 13.4% alcohol and costs $30 a bottle.  

The Old Vine Rosé was made from another famous variety, and this single vineyard wine was hand-harvested from once acre of 43-year-old Gewürztraminer vines – the oldest vines on the estate and some of the oldest on Long Island. After gently pressing, it was fermented wild for 4 months in neutral oak barrels, along with a small portion of our estate Malbec.

The flowery aromatics of the Gewürztraminer combines perfectly with the bright color and crisp acidity of the Malbec, creating a truly unique and delicious rosé, that’s perfect for summer sipping.

The Old Vine Rosé is 75% Gewürztraminer, 25% Merlot, is 12.2% alcohol by volume and costs $30 a bottle.  

Both wines can be purchased online at https://www.coreycreektaproom.com, at Corey Creek or at liquor stores throughout the East End.
