Additional Information on Millbrook Tocai Friulano 2014

Winery: Millbrook

Varietal: Tocai Friulano

The Tocai Fruiliano grape has been grown in and around the northern Italian region of Friulia for centuries, where it remains the most widely cultivated varietal and is deeply entrenched in the local wine culture. There have been successful planting of Tocai Fruiliano in the New World, also, as it grows in many places where the climatic conditions are just right, and thrives well on dry and sunny hillsides. Tocai Fruiliano has long been thought to be a relative of Hungary's Tokaji grape, and the Tokay d'Alsace grape of France, but recent scientific research has proven this to be false. In actual fact, the Tocai Fruiliano is none other than the Sauvignon Vert varietal, which is a grape grown in many parts of Europe. Wines made from the Tocai Fruiliano are generally straw yellow in color, and packed full of citrus flavors They are most easily recognizable by their strong bouquet of wild flowers.

Region: New York

Whilst not as well known as certain other United States wine regions, the wines of New York state have plenty to offer, and are packed full of unique characteristics which are gaining popularity on both sides of the Atlantic. New York state enjoys a fine climate for the growing of certain Old World grape varietals – notably those from Germany and central France - and boasts a fine array of excellent hybrid grapes ideal for the cooler, damper weather the state receives. New York state also has a wine heritage which stretches back several hundred years, and certain regions within the area can be traced back to the original Dutch settlers from the 17th century. This mixture of history and innovation still effects the wine production which characterizes the region today, where you'll find traditional wine-making techniques sitting comfortably alongside modern technologies and palates.

Country: United States

Whilst there are several strains of native grape varietals in the United States, it was the introduction of the European species which prompted the country to begin producing wines on a large scale. Over the past few centuries, experimentation and cross-breeding has produced great successes in regards to the quality and suitability of the fruit grown in states such as California, Oregon, Washington and New York, and the past few decades have seen New World wines from the United States reach much higher standards. Arguably the finest United States wines have always come out of California, where the climate and terrroir is most suitable for fine wine production. The masterful blending of classic grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, amongst others including Syrah and Chardonnay, have had world beating results in recent years, prompting many to suggest that there has never been a better time for buying and drinking United States wines.
