(2022) 100% Chardonnay, Dijon clone #76 and Davis clone 3, planted between 1988 and 1994. Winemaker Roman Roth explained how this is a Spring frost-free region, yet is cooler in summer than Manhattan for example, which is why so many New Yorkers head to the Hamptons and other resort areas for summer. This wine is fermented and aged in French oak, around 19% new barrels. Mealy and creamy, a little nougat and peach. In the mouth the oak gives a little nuttiness and also some tannic firmness, the fruit like lemon and melon skins. It has quite a firm finish, again a note of salinity, a lovely wine if perhaps a little too strict in the finish. Roman suggests it will age well for a decade. Acidity: 6.0g/l, RS: 0.05g/l. Seeking UK distribution, this wine has an RRP of $32 US.
