Stolpman Vineyards 2022 Uni
The wine delivered such intensity, but, thanks to the Chardonnay, the refrained elegance of a fine wine. Apart from the inviting flavor profile – orange blossom, honeysuckle, meyer lemon – we became obsessed with the wine’s texture. Bound within the creaminess lay a world of jasmine, tropical guava, pear and marzipan. Unanimously, we voted to capture the magic as is, without fining, filtration, or any other settling – we wanted to bottle the slightly hazy “nigori style” profile without stripping anything away.
Composition: 60% Chardonnay, 40% Roussanne
