Layer upon layer of honey, honeysuckle, peaches, apricots, marmalade and butter notes, which cover every facet of your palate. This deeply concentrated yet vibrant wine is one the most mesmerizing versions we have sampled from Stolpman. In fact, and as we declared with the inaugural 2013, this is without a doubt the best US Roussanne money can buy at this price and in the context of value, this is truly world-class...
Full-bodied and a step up in concentration levels compared to the Estate. The 2014 L’Avion is a remarkable wine and offers the same levels of richness found with Château Beaucastel’s Roussanne Vieilles Vignes. Lots of minerality, fruit, acidity and a finish which lasts for well over five minutes. In short, this is an extraordinary wine, perfectly proportioned which will offer you a rare glimpse of something very, very special.
Dense, alluring purple fruit dominates the nose with a nice touch of violet, red plum, and sage on the periphery. Rich and full bodied, the wine packs many layers as it coats the mouth. At first the wine comes off as full bodied and ripe, but then shows red pomegranate brightness towards the finish. Already showing great – who doesn’t love deep dark and delicious? 2015 Para Maria once again drinks way above its pay grade.
