STOLPMAN IS BACK WITH ANOTHER OUTSTANDING EFFORT FROM SASHI MOORMAN!
"We have been carrying Stolpman Vineyards wines since the beginning and every year the team seems to step it up a notch! This wine is no different with 95 points! This wine is just too good to keep in stock so don’t miss out. Buy to open up with friends today or cellar to enjoy in years to come." – Glen Knight, The Wine House (4/4/17)
FROM THE WINERY
Vineyard: Blocks 1 & 2 – oldest vines on the property
Varietal Blend: 100% Syrah
Vinification: 50% whole-cluster in open top unsealed concrete tanks
Vatting/Fermentation: 28 days
Cooperage & Elevage: all neutral puncheon for 14 months
Inky dark, Originals Syrah is tightly wound, strong and lively. It will certainly enjoy a long life in the cellar and reward those with the patience to wait. If opened prior to 2018, please make sure the grill is hot and a ribeye is nearby: this bad boy needs protein.
About Stolpman Vineyards
Over 20 years ago, our Founding Partner, Thomas Stolpman, discovered what we believe 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 ideally suited to grow Syrah and Roussanne grapes. We are committed to preserving this natural environment for our vines through natural farming, dry farming, & sustainable employment. In the winery, we prefer native fermentation & minimal manipulation. Dedicated to sensible farming & winemaking, we believe that we can create natural, vibrant, site-specific wines, with a focus unique to Ballard Canyon AVA, California.
