FRUITY/AROMATIC WHITES

Fruity/aromatic; dry - ROUSSANNE, Stolpman. Ballard Canyon, California

2017 ROUSSANNE, Stolpman. Ballard Canyon, California

Bin: 149
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Ballard Canyon is in Santa Barbara County, closer to LA than San Francisco. It's a moderate rather than cool sub-region, so unlike some of the neighbouring areas that specialise in Chardonnay and Pinot, the key grapes here are Syrah and white Rhône varieties.
Grape Variety: Dry-farmed (still unusual in California) Roussanne (with 10% of Chardonnay), fermented and matured for 15 months in 500 litre oak barrels (25% new wood).
Producer: 150 acres of vineyard, owned and run by the Stolpman family with the help of consultant winemaker Sashi Moorman.
Old Bridge Rating: Exotic richness with balanced acidity - hedonistic but not overpowering.
