Own Rooted Field Blend
The richest, most regal of all of the Stolpman So Fresh family – 2018 Own-Rooted Field-Blend shows up front ripeness and a coating, sumptuous red profile. It pops, sizzles, and impresses like the rest of the So Fresh crowd but the Field Blend brings depth and even more seriousness – a hybrid that can be enjoyed by both the Natty and Classic crowd!
Today Stolpman Vineyards stands proud with 13 acres of tightly spaced, head-pruned, revolutionary vineyard blocks. These blocks, entirely farmed by hand, singularly represent Peter and Jessica Stolpman’s fanatical pursuit of unprecedented quality. The 2018 Own-Rooted Field-Blend is the first taste of the revolution: Perhaps the purist reflection of the vineyard: completely hands off, uncrushed grapes fermented whole, without any additives or sulfur. The goal here is to make a wine that reflects only their terroir and the mix of grapes they've planted here. Un-grafted Vinifera balance themselves, and we try to capture their most delicate nuance by avoiding extraction or other winemaking influences.
