“Roussanne might be the richest, most decadent white grape in the world of wine. Ripe fruit intensity, and a coating, thick mid-palate deliver a hedonistic “wow” factor not often found in white wines.”
A depth of honeysuckle elevated via a pineapple bridge to lemon & lime and crunchy pear flesh. Softly billowing in the mouth closing with a precise, clean finish. The most balanced Uni yet, with complementing forces of ripe, rich Roussanne and high-toned Chardonnay. The underlying citrus spray refines and checks the intense concentration of the Roussanne and the wine delivers a delightfully seamless tasting experience.

94 Points Antonio Galloni – “The 2020 Uni, Stolpman’s Roussanne/Chardonnay blend is absolutely gorgeous. Apricot, tangerine oil and white flowers lend notable complexity to this luscious, bold white. Drink it now or over the next handful of years.”
93 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – “A blend of 70% Roussanne and 30% Chardonnay, the 2020 Uni White has rich toasty apple scents on the nose with wafts of crème brûlée, flint and beeswax. The medium-bodied palate is rounded and spicy with loads of nutty fruits and a long, gently honeyed finish.”
