Very floral with complex apple and pear fruit. Mouth-watering acidity, nice full midpalate, comfortable finish
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.

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."
