About Stolpman Vineyards Uni Roussanne
Stolpman Vineyards Uni Roussanne bursts forth with golden pineapple, white flowers, and Asian pear backed by tangerine citrus. Delightful fuzziness all over from the nose through the mouth. Fresh, crunchy acidity complements the full-bodied richness of the mid-palate and provides a titillating cut under the fleshy, cloudy textures. It is rare to find so much zest and energy in such a coating white wine!
Roussanne might be the richest, most decadent white grape in the world of wine. Ripe fruit intensity, and a coating, thick mid-palate deliver a hedonistic “wow” factor not often found in white wines. Because Roussanne spends months ripening on the vine, slowly developing its signature flavor concentration, the tart acidity of the grape often dwindles by harvest time. At Stolpman, they decided zesty Chardonnay would be the perfect blending compliment. The Chardonnay lends a structured backbone that refreshes the palate once the Roussanne’s up-front wave of flavor ebbs. Like Santa Barbara’s most famous delicacy, urchin harvested off the Channel Islands, the Uni white wine combines decadent richness with delicate precision. Stolpman originally created Uni in 2016 as an exclusive for the Uchi Sushi group out of Austin, Texas. Word quickly got out about the wine, with the help of SommTV’s promotion of Uni alongside the release of the Delicacy film. Today, Uni can be enjoyed throughout the US, Japan, and Korea.
About Stolpman Vineyards
Over 20 years ago, Tom Stolpman discovered what he believed to be one of the greatest viticultural sites on earth. Hidden in the hills of California’s Central Coast, on a rare limestone outcropping & unobstructed from the Pacific Ocean wind, this unique land is naturally suited to grow Syrah and Roussanne grapes. Stolpman is committed to preserving this natural environment for their vines through conscious farming, dry farming, & sustainable employment. In the winery, they prefer native fermentation & minimal manipulation.
Dedicated to sensible farming & winemaking, Stolpman Winery believes that they can create vibrant, site-specific wines, with a focus unique to the Ballard Canyon AVA in California.
