Wolffer Estate la Ferme Martin Chardonnay 2004

Member Review by LennThompson:

Fermented mostly in stainless steel, preserving the bright fruit and fresh acidity that this wine is known for. Crisp pear, citrus and just a little minerality are the calling cards here. 15% barrel fermentation lends just the most subtle creaminess on the finish.

Long Island wine's "sweet spot" in terms of price-for-quality tends to be in the $20+ realm. Unfortunately, that turns a lot of neophyte wine drinkers off, but one of my favorite wines for less than $15 has long been Wolffer's simple-but-tasty La Ferme Martin Chardonnay ($14). My first bottle from the newly released 2004 vintage was slightly corked and seemed a bit heavy on the oak. It left me wondering if one of my favorite summer "house" wines had lost its decidedly East Coast style? It was clearly just a single bottle anomaly. Opening a second (and then third) bottle a few days later, my fears were allayed. The nose was fresh with ripe pears and citrus with only a sprinkling of oak inflection. Refreshingly light but ripe, this is a fruit-driven summer sipper with abundant pear and apple flavors accented by a squeeze of lime. For $13.50, this is a great pool –- or ocean-side –- wine that offers nicely balanced fruit and acidity. It also went nicely with parmesan-sweet pea risotto cakes fresh from my own kitchen.
