2016 Rosé of Grenache (Stolpman Vineyards)

Stolpman Vineyards, Rosé, Santa Ynez Valley, California 2016

{sustainable} 100% Grenache

SPICY STRAWBERRY, RICH FINISH, A HINT OF... PINEAPPLE?

This news probably won't send legions of wine writers racing to their vintage Remington teletypes, but once again Stolpman Vineyards have gone the non-traditional route (surprise, surprise). The Grenache grapes were allowed to ferment as whole fruit for three days before pressing and then the juice spent three months in neutral oak, which is one of those unfashionable acts of chutzpah that can set new standards. We get a super-rich rosé with more tropical and spice notes than the traditional chugger.

Serving Suggestions: Spatchcock chicken on the grill with a thick, sweet BBQ sauce and a side of okra coated in cornstarch and lightly fried.
