Wölffer Estate Chardonnay
2022, Chardonnay, U.S.A.
Wölffer Estate encompasses 55 acres of sustainably farmed vines under the meticulous care of Winemaker/Partner Roman Roth and Vineyard Manager Rich Pisacano. Our unique combination of Bridgehampton loam soil and ocean breezes from the Atlantic, only 2.6 miles away, provide Bordeaux-like conditions, perfect to achieve the balance of ripeness and acidity of Wölffer's signature style: European elegance paired with the distinct typicity of Long Island terroir. When grapes are sourced outside our vineyard, they must meet rigorous Wölffer quality standards. Light gold in color, this classic Chardonnay gives off fresh aromas of white peach, citrus and honeysuckle. Ripe fruit dances on the palate with nice concentration and character in a creamy texture. The mouth-feel is layered and grand yet lively with vibrant acidity and minerality. The finish is long and elegant. Serve slightly chilled with a variety of foods, including shellfish, lobster, crab cakes, fin-fish and white meats. It also is the perfect wine with which to experience the classic pairing of Chardonnay and farmhouse cheddar. (from the vintner)
