Tasting Notes

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.

Staff Pick Notes

A consistent highlight amongst local rosés, Wolffer's is a blend of Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Immediately, this vintage shows a touch more greenness on the nose than previous years; reminiscent of kiwi and mint, with peaches and strawberries showing as the dominant fruit notes. On the palate, the balance is wonderful, a juicy, creamy acidity, with subtle fruit tones mimicking the aromas. The wine finishes with a pleasant bitter tang that both refreshes and invites you to come back for another sip.
