Winemaker's Notes:

Wonderful pear and apricot fruit is enhanced by a bright creamy note and a fine fresh lemon scent. The mouth-feel is elegant and vibrant, with a ripe and rich medium body that is in beautiful balance with lively acidity and great minerality. The weight of the wine is in perfect harmony, and the long zesty finish makes this an utterly delicious Chardonnay that is very food friendly and will also age well.

About Wölffer Estate:

Wölffer Estate, an American Winery in the Classic European Tradition in Sagaponack, New York: Here, in the heart of the Hamptons, a collection of quaint villages stretched like a string of pearls on the shores of the Atlantic, is Wölffer Estate, a winery like none other on the east end of Long Island.

Owned by Hamburg-born Christian Wölffer, the 55-acre winery, located between Southampton to the west and Easthampton to the east, is at once an American winery but with a decidedly European character, both in its spirit and its wines. The winery currently produces 13,000 cases annually.

Under winemaker and general manager Roman Roth’s meticulous care, Wölffer Estate wines embody the region as well as a classical style of winemaking, with a rich concentration of fruit and lively acidity born of the unique terroir of these Sagaponack vineyards, similar in some respects to conditions in Bordeaux. In fact, it is the condition of the local soil, called Bridgehampton loam, a by-product of the glacial moraine that formed Long Island, that provides a perfect host for grapevines.
