Wolffer Estate Summer in a Bottle Rosé has lovely balance between the fresh fruit, fine tannins, good minerality and graceful acidity. It is the visual and taste portrait of the Hampton's high summer. As always, this wildly popular wine is very limited!
Wölffer Estate Vineyard is unquestionably a beautiful place. But the creation of it spanned over three decades and required a creative vision, an ability to bring dreams to reality and a great deal of dedicated hard work by many people. Christian Wölffer possessed the vision and with the meticulous care of his professional team that built this special place - Wölffer Estate Vineyard - that was created, first and foremost, to be enjoyed by people.
The original parcel of land was a potato farm with an old farmhouse in what is now the middle of the estate. Over the years as more acres were acquired, paddocks and stables were added and in 1987, the vineyard was founded. This 55-acre winery is part of a 175-acre estate with boarding stables, 30 paddocks, an indoor jumping ring, and a Grand Prix field. Both the stables and winery have a European character and these former potato fields have become the foundation for world-class wines. Wölffer Estate Vineyard is an American Winery in the Classic European Tradition.
This beautiful rosé has a bright shiny light copper in color. The glass is filled with ripe pear, fresh papaya and rose petal aromas. The mouthfeel is rich and elegant with great structure and wonderful layers. This Rosé has lovely balance between the fresh fruit, fine tannins, good minerality and graceful acidity. The wine is very savory and has a long finish with creamy yeast and nice classic chalk notes. It is the perfect summer wine.
