Wolffer Estate Rose 2017

Winemaker's Notes:

A complex Rose with great dimension and understated elegance. Wolffer's flagship dry Rose is a lovely blend of six varieties and exudes pure and fresh aromas of peach and pear. One of our most popular roses and with good reason.

Jasmine flowers and light perfume on the nose. Crisp and fresh on the tongue with a bit of acidity. Light ruby red grapefruit and apricot. Fizzy -a bit of carbonation and acidic finish.

Wolffer is the best winery on LI...This rose is blah at best. The actually winery is the place to be, but the actual wine 'rose' is too sweet and too floral...

A beautiful pale (extremely pale) copper-salmon color, the nose is very reminiscent of sauvignon blanc with fresh squeezed citrus aromas –- grapefuit, lemon and lime –- with subtle hints of herbs and briary strawberry. On the palate, it continues its impersonation of a dry white wine with grapefruit and lemon staying in the forefront. Only as it warms do some strawberry and raspberry notes emerge. Medium-light bodied, it has great acidity and is no doubt extremely versatile.

Fresh with hints of gooseberries, wild strawberries, kiwi and fresh apples, with clean, crisp minerality. .

In collaboration with Wölffer Estates, André Balazs introduces this delectable rosé, once exclusive to his hotels and restaurants. With a delicate copper/pink color, aromas of pink grapefruit and summer berries jump from the glass and progress through the palate. Another success for Wölffer winemaker Roman Roth!

One of the few wineries on Long Island's South Fork, Wölffer uses Bordeaux grapes (plus a splash of Chardonnay) to create this ultra-fresh, food-friendly rosé. Citrus, strawberries, and a mineral-laden finish will make for a night to remember - even if you're not in the Hamptons.

It must be spring on Long Island. The weather is getting just a little warmer. The East End sod farms are blanketed in that golf course green. And Wolffer Estate has released its new rosé vintage. In making his rosé, Wolffer Estate's Roman Roth often blends white and red grapes, and this vintage is no different. It’s made with 40% Chardonnay, 35% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet Franc. Roth, like most everyone in the Long Island wine world, considers 2007 "an ideal growing season" because there were many warm, sunny days and only moderate rain. The fruit for this wine was harvested between September 26 and October 13. After crush, the juice was gently pressed off and settled at 50° Fahrenheit followed by a cool fermentation temperature of 66° Fahrenheit to total dryness. Aged in stainless steel after blending, Malolactic fermentation was strictly avoided. Wolffer made a lot of it this year — over 4000 cases — but with another Hamptons summer ahead, they'll need it. A beautiful pale — extremely pale — copper-salmon color, the nose is very reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc with fresh squeezed citrus aromas – grapefuit, lemon and lime — with subtle hints of herbs and briary strawberry. On the palate, it continues its impersonation of a dry white wine with grapefruit and lemon staying in the forefront. Only as it warms do some strawberry and raspberry notes emerge. Medium-light bodied, it has great acidity and is no doubt extremely versatile. Drink it with shellfish, non-shellfish, salads, or on its own on a hot summer day at the beach. Looking for the quintessential Hamptons wine? This might be it. Delicious.

Wolffer Estate 2007 Rose 750ml. The color is shiny light salmon with some gold. The nose is filled with fresh fruit of ripe lemons with a wonderful combination of gooseberry and strawberry. The mouth-feel is vibrant with very clean and crisp fruits of ripe apples with some orange, fine lime notes and great minerality. The finish is elegant yet playful and goes on for quite a long time. This is another classic Wolffer Rose, dry, light and very refreshing but rich enough to make it a great companion with food.
