One of the many great qualities of Long Island wine is balance – when all the key components (alcohol, acid, tannin, sugar) of wine work in harmony. Balanced wines are also those that can age beautifully and in the June 30th issue of Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, reviewer Mark Squires awarded exceptional scores to Long Island wines that have matured beautifully, demonstrating that Long Island wines are a strong addition to you wine cellar this summer!
