Sharpe Hill Cuvee Ammi Phillips Recieves Score of 90 from Wine Spectator
Sharpe Hill Vineyard is the award winning winery located in Connecticut's Quiet Corner. Sharpe Hill Vineyard has received over 200 medals in international tastings and is located in the town of Pomfret - just minutes from scenic Route 169 and from the Putnam Antiques District. The winery is open year round to the public for wine tastings.
In the brand new Wine Spectator, July 31, 2007, Brunello di Montalcino issue, Sharpe Hill's Cuvee Ammi Phillips chardonnay scored a 90! That's more than Cakebread, Clos Du Bois, Grich Hills, Patz & Hall, and a number of other excellent producers. And that's a wine from a Connecticut winery!
Cuvee Ammi Phillips, Sharpe Hill's limited edition Cuvee, is made completely in brand new French Oak barrels with Chardonnay grapes from North Fork, Long Island. This full bodied Chardonnay is best when served with salmon/seafood or poultry dishes. It was released summer of 2006.
"Pear and vanilla flavors have a touch of honey....Sleek yet rich," wrote reviewer Tom Matthews.
This is great news for east coast wine! Order ASAP!
