Stolpman Vineyards Roussanne 2012, Ballard Canyon
This “seriously structured” white from AVA Ballard Canyon is suited to Chardonnay lovers looking to try something new, writes Rebecca Murphy in the Dallas News this week.
She said: “It’s rich and vibrant, with floral, honeyed peach fruit and vanilla highlights. It has medium weight with a creamy, round and voluptuous mouthfeel made buoyant by citrusy acidity. Enjoy it with a juicy steak or sautéed scallops.
“Tom Stolpman, a Los Angeles attorney, and his wife, Marilyn, chose Ballard Canyon as the site for their family vineyards and winery more than 20 years ago. Their son Peter is the hands-on partner, managing the property on a daily basis.”
