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

Lovely, elegant dessert wine. Retains enough acidity not to feel too cloying. Dangerously drinkable! Might be awesome over vanilla ice cream too. Or fruit pie. Oh my.

Mango and lychee nose, lots of honey on the finish, soy sauce and loads of sugar. Very concentrated.

Peaches and lychee on the nose. Very fruity and syrupy. For someone who doesn't particularly like sweet wines, I really enjoyed this wine.

Winemaker Kareem Massoud harvests his select Sauvignon Blanc grapes late, to allow natural botrytis to form, then freezes them to further the concentration of flavors. The nose showed apricots, lychee & dried stone fruits. This wine is like nectar, showing dried fruit, mango citrus & creamy peach. It’s incredibly dense & complex with a finish that simply wouldn’t end.

Tasting Notes:

A slow, cool fermentation in new French oak barrels yielded intense and focused tropical fruit flavors like litchi, quince, pineapple, mango and guava. This wine is rich and sweet, and has ample acidity to balance the sugar, resulting in a sensational, full-bodied, dessert wine with a long finish. The oak embellishes the wine by imparting a subtle nutty flavor and by increasing complexity.

Made from carefully hand-harvested grapes affected by botrytis, the 'noble rot'.

155 cases produced.
