Stolpman Vineyards 2022 Grenache
One of the deepest, ripest Estate Grenache vintages in memory, the 2022 moves more in a heady, inviting direction rather than the vervy cut of the past few years. Pure, seductively perfumed red fruit, exuding freshness in its youth. In the mouth, the wines shows rich and coating complimented by youthful yet restrained acidity and already extremely refined tannin. The tell-tale Grenache spice picks up on the finish and I’m excited to see the integration by the end of 2023 and into 2024.
