Wölffer Summer in a Bottle Rosé 2019
|Region||United States, New York, The Hamptons, Long Island|
The 2019 Summer in a Bottle is the winery's most atmospheric pink. It is a kitchen-sink blend of 40% Merlot, 22% Chardonnay, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Gewürztraminer, 6% Cabernet Franc and small amounts of Pinot Meunier, Pinot Blanc, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc, all unoaked, very dry and coming in at 12.8% alcohol. This adds some power to the entry-level pink this issue, but more importantly, more flavor and character. A touch of herbs, stones and slate rule the roost, but there are hints of other nuances you can't quite place, as the characteristics of many aromatic grapes fold into the whole. They all combine to make this both tasty and interesting. Drink it very young for best results.
A juicy rosé, with a plump, refreshing profile, offering blood orange and ripe melon flavors and underpinnings of spice. Drink now.
