WÖLFFER ESTATE VINEYARD UNVEILS NEW SUMMER IN A BOTTLE WINE
INTRODUCING SUMMER IN A BOTTLE WHITE 2014
Inspired by the Popular Summer in a Bottle Rosé
Sagaponack, NY – May 1, 2015 – Wölffer Estate Vineyard, a sustainable vineyard in the heart of the Hamptons, today announces the release of a new white table wine: Summer in a Bottle White. Inspired by its popular sibling Summer in a Bottle Rosé ($24/bottle), which was introduced last year and sold out within 3-1/2 weeks, Summer in a Bottle White 2014 ($24/bottle) is available now at Wölffer Estate and at select retailers and restaurants.
In addition to their beautiful floral label, imprinted directly on the bottle, what distinguishes the Summer in a Bottle wines is their high-summer fruit character. An homage to the beautiful summer of 2014 and the color of sunshine, Summer in a Bottle White is a literal taste of the season. “We specially selected different vineyards on Long Island for this food-friendly white blend. The balanced blend of four grapes creates a fresh, vivacious wine with juicy aromas of local summer fruits. Think ripe peach, apricot and cantaloupe, along with honeysuckle and freshly cut hay. All smells of summer.”
An aromatic blend of 41% Chardonnay, 29% Gewürztraminer, 20% Riesling and 10% Pinot Gris, this vivacious white is bright and playful, and will complement most high-season summer fare. And like Summer in a Bottle Rosé, it comes in a screwcap closure, perfect for summer picnics and beach parties. The wine rests sur lie for three months before it’s blended and bottled with a screwcap closure. Only 2,300 cases were produced.
Summer in a Bottle White joins Wölffer Estate Vineyard’s selection of elegant white table wines, including its reserve-level Perle Chardonnay ($30) and wild-yeast-fermented White Mischief Chardonnay ($30/bottle), as well as its iconic gold-label estate whites, Classic White ($16/bottle), Chardonny ($19/bottle), Sauvignon Blanc ($22/bottle) and Trebbiano ($22/bottle). The vineyard also boasts a sparkling wine, Cool as Well Brut Sparkling Blanc de Blancs ($35/bottle), and ice-wine style dessert wine, Diosa Late Harvest ($37/bottle).
