Founded in the spring of 1983, our 103 acre estate is entirely owned and managed by Ursula and Charles Massoud, and our three sons. Born and raised in the "Old World", wine has always been a part of our lives and we continue the tradition at Paumanok Vineyards. Only premium vinifera grapevines are planted, consisting of Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The traditional dense planting of the vineyards at 1100 vines per acre produces more concentrated fruit and therefore higher quality wines. For our wines, only estate grown grapes are used and production is limited to fewer than 9000 cases. Read less

Apples, pears, a little peach, Apricots, bright acidity, some citrus fruits, even a bit of banana, or potassium on the end. Nicely balanced, drinkable Sweet fruity nose at first glance, but nice on its own, fresh Only producer in ny growing chennin, and making it since 91

Lime and green apple. Candy nose. Very peachy finish, slightly carbonated, beautifully sweet, good acid.

Pears on the nose. Nice and buttery in the mouth with a bit of a tart citrus finish. Loved it!

Tasted at the winery (along with a delicious fermenting tank sample). Wine shows citrus and tropical fruit flavors with a nice funk on the finish. Crisp and refreshing acidity.

The nose is complex and expressive, showing a fruit salad mélange of grapefruit, mango, pear, melon and orange blossom. A medium-bodied palate starts off fresh and clean with melon, grapefruit and mineral flavors, but as the wine crosses over into the mid-palate, the flavors change a bit, becoming richer with pineapple and honey overtones. That honeyed fruit character carries through to the finish, which is long and delicious. The texture of this wine is faintly oily but it remains lively and clean because there’s plenty of balancing acidity.

Founded in 1983, Paumanok has emerged as one of the bst wineries on the North Shore of Long Island. A fresh, racy, dry and clean Chenin that is redolent of grapefruit and pineapple, with more subtle notes of melon, apple and guava. It makes an excellent companion to various white meat fish dishes, and especially shellfish.

Here is Howard Goldberg of The New York Times review of Paumanok's top wine:"Chenin blanc, long a Paumanok specialty, is a perennial favorite of mine. Bracing and aromatic it resembles a Loire Vouvray from a cool year. Densely flavorful, it has herbal accents and a mouth-watering acidity that is ideal for seafood."

A fresh, dry, unoaked Chenin Blanc that shows grapefruit, pineapple, melon, apple and guava. It makes an excellent companion to various white meat fish dishes, and especially shellfish.



Tasting Notes:

It underwent a slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks. It was bottled with a screw cap to preserve freshness and cleaniness. The result is a fresh, crisp, racy, and bracing Chenin that is redolent of grapefruit and pineapple, with more subtle notes of melon, apple and guava
