Wine Review: Suhru Brut NV

Wine Review: Suhru Brut NV

Suhru was founded in 2008 by Russell and Susan Hearn. Russell is also the winemaker of Lieb Cellars, whose wines I've have had the pleasure of reviewing many many times and thoroughly enjoy. During his wine career, Russell worked his way around the globe: New Zealand, Burgundy, California, Massachusetts and, in 1990, Virginia. Hearing about the wonderful Chardonnay being made on Long Island, he took the trip there with other winemakers to see what's doin'. And he's been there ever since.

This is the winery that Susan and Russell always dreamed they would have. Suhru's goal is to source excellent fruit from the regions in New York where each variety grows best, creating vibrant, balanced, and approachable wines for all to enjoy.

This is wine #6 of 6 that I'm reviewing by Suhru. I already reviewed the 2017 Pinot Grigio2013 Ember2017 Sauvignon Blanc2016 Dry Riesling2013 Shiraz, and now I'm concluding the series with their NV Brut. To see all of them, or the ones that have been published already, just check out the month on the blog.

The NV Brut is made using the traditional méthode champenoise method using 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir, both from Riverhead on the North Fork of Long Island. It has an ABV of 12% and will cost you $29.

The color of the wine is a beautiful light gold, and the bubbles are tiny and moderate in speed. On the nose there's a floral cloud over the aromas of apples, pears, and yeast. It's medium bodied, has a creamy and fluffy mouthfeel, and a bright acidity. There's flavors of apples, limes, and graham crackers. Then it finishes with apples, limes, and a bit of hot spice.

Absolutely delicious! I love the mouthfeel, and the finish is perfect with just the right amount of dryness and acidity. It's just a well done bubbly at the right price! And unfortunately that's all from Suhru for now. Thanks for letting me try your wines, guys! Cheers!
