We're smitten with this Wolffer Estate Rose. According to the winemakers, there's something about the Bridgehampton loam soil and the Atlantic ocean breezes which create Bordeaux-like conditions which allow their wines to become the perfect balance of ripeness and acidity. These facts combined with our fervent hope that spring is not too far off, make it a great way to start the week. We'll drink to that!

Winery:  "Light orange/copper in color. The glass is filled with fine elegant aromas of fresh ripe pear and apples. The mouth-feel is clean and vibrant and has a wonderful playful minerality from start to finish.  There is a beautiful balance between ripe fruit, fine acidity, creamy yeast notes and elegant tannins with great complexity in the mid-pallet and good finesse. The wine is deliciously dry and has a classic, lingering finish making it a perfect food companion.

Food Pairing: Serve just chilled. Pair this wine with elegant hors-d’oeuvres, such as smoked salmon, poached lobster, raw shellfish, beef or tuna tartare, and soft cheeses. Or serve it with main-course dishes such as roast turkey, baked ham, and roasted or grilled pork, chicken or fish…it is very versatile!"

Why this wine? "Wolffer Rose is an homage to summertime in the Hamptons. the fruit is harvested in waves, capturing the flavors of the 7 different component (grape varieties) at the perfect moment. Additionally, we allow our Rose extended contact with the lees. The result is a complex Rose with great dimension and understated elegance."
