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. .

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

The colorful painting of a garden on the bottle of Wölffer Estate’s new rosé announces its aspirations. It’s called Summer in a Bottle 2013, and you can thank the gewürztraminer in the blend for the seductive hints of tropical fruits in this wine that’s the color of rose quartz. Merlot contributes bright fruit — strawberries, perhaps — on the palate, with a pleasingly dry finish. Wölffer has been making popular rosés since 1993.(Florence Fabricant-THE NEW YORK TIMES)*Due in early June*
