Stolpman 2018 Roussanne
Roussanne brings a strong tropical game. The perfect pairing to a palm tree-lined beach and the only beverage you need while you eat a freshly grilled whole fish with your hands. It might sound aggressive but behind the tantalizing perfectly-ripe golden pineapple there is a carnal element I find rare in white wines. The coating texture calls for fleshy meats, a Los Angeles sommelier even pairs this wine with Short Ribs - a departure from the more typical seafood, poultry, and Asian dishes I usually associate with Roussanne.
