Stolpman Estate Rosé 2021
Estate Rose always delivers intense floral aromas and concentrated richness due to the vineyard’s tiny dry-farmed grapes. Of course, the richness all packs into the zesty, crisp dry rose profile. For the better part of the decade, we focused Estate Rose on the purity of 100% Grenache. However, after a research trip to Bandol in 2019, we couldn’t resist the temptation to add Mourvèdre (and Syrah) to the blend in 2020.
