WINEMAKER'S NOTES

The 2017 vintage was a roller coaster of a vintage. The growing season saw wide swings of temperature and weather. April was unseasonably warm, May and June were much cooler than usual and rainy, along with spells of perfect conditions. The cool spring put the brakes on growth. July brought warmer, humid weather mixed with some gorgeous blue skies and sunny, dry breezy weather. The dry weather continued in August. September and October were much warmer than usual and presented a series of up and down patterns with beautiful days mixed with unwanted tropical weather including the threat of Hurricane Jose on September 19.

ABOUT THE WINERY: PAUMANOK VINEYARDS

Founded in the spring of 1983, our 127 acre estate is entirely owned and managed by Ursula and Charles Massoud, and our three sons. Born and raised in the "Old World", wine has always been a part of our lives and we continue the tradition at Paumanok Vineyards. Only premium vinifera grapevines are planted, consisting of Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The traditional dense planting of the vineyards at 1100 to 1400 vines per acre produces more concentrated fruit and therefore higher quality wines. For our wines, only estate grown grapes are used and production is limited to fewer than 12,000 cases.
