A “MIGHTY” WHITE – JUST IN TIME FOR SUMMER

The Paderewski Vineyard is 67 acres of undulating, steep, limestone rich hillsides within 350 rural, spring-fed acres in Paso Robles.  In the early 1900’s, this vineyard was cherished and farmed by world-renowned pianist, polish diplomat, and vintner, Ignacy Jan Paderewski.  Fast forward a century, and this property stood forgotten and fallow.  In 2004 Epoch became the steward of this amazing piece of property.

Winemaker Notes: She’s a white wine, but she is mighty and built to last.  Like opening Pandora’s box, uncorking this wine is a wild ride of explosive favors – white peaches, citrus blossoms, ginger, lemon oil, crème fraîche, dried straw and custard.  Grenache Blanc and Viognier fermented and lees-aged in concrete deliver abundant freshness and rocky minerality.  The third sibling, Roussanne, returns to the DNA and lengthens out the palate, gifting age-worthiness and a honeyed viscosity.  The 2015 Epoch White will wow you now and for several years to come.  Age her – we dare you!

Wine Profile: 71% Catapult and 29% Paderewski Vineyards, Paso Robles .  A blend of 46% Viognier, 40% Grenache Blanc, 14% Roussanne.

Ideal Food Pairing: Oysters on the half shell

Robert Parker 93 Points: ”The 2015 Epoch White is made from mostly Grenache Blanc and Viognier, yet has 14% Roussanne in the blend. Aged five months on lees (a mix of concrete, neutral barrels and 9% new barrels), it offers impressive notes of citrus rind, white flowers and saline-like minerality in its fresh, tight, crisp and downright classy profile. It’s a prime example of how good these Rhone-themed whites from Paso are today. Drink it over the coming 2-3 years.”
