With the Loire Valley in mind, Joseph Macari originally planted Sauvignon Blanc on the North Fork of Long Island convinced of the similarities of the terrain. I might say with good results.
Here is a wonderful 2012 Vintage, pale dusty yellow colors in the glass, high in acidity with aromas of honeydew melon, citrus and grass, while on the palate strong notes of grapefruit and lime and more melon. Paired beautifully with a pasta with shrimp dish. $23/bottle.
