See How Wölffer Estate Vineyard Makes Its Iconic Rosé

New, 2 comments

Around here, rosé is known as Hamptons Gatorade, and the local favorite surely must come from Wölffer. Wölffer's gold label rosé is a blend of six grapes: cabernet franc, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, chardonnay and a little bit of Riesling. "Because we use six different flavors and textures here, even though it's a simple, fun rosé, it makes a complex rosé and that's the key," says master vintner Roman Roth. Wölffer handles the red grapes less than other wineries. "Our rosé we want fresh and light, so we are very gentle. Pick a little earlier when the grapes are still fresher. That's what gives our classic elegant light style," Roth says. See more in the video below from TheStreet.com.
