MY BIO BY WINEMAKER JORDAN FIORENTINI

The 2019 Epoch White is our characteristic combination of Grenache Blanc, Viognier, and Roussanne but with a twist: we have added a new fermentation vessel to the mix for complexity, a French oak Foudre (or more simply called an oak cask). Having been raised in various concrete vessels and oak formats, this wine is mineral-laced with ripe yellow peach, lemon oil, green pear, fresh cream, wet clay, and a hint of brown baking spices.  Our white is an ace at pairing with some of the most challenging foods (artichokes and Thai or Mexican dishes) and will not disappoint with a few years of cellar age.

Notes from Jordan: “Our combination of Grenache Blanc, Viognier, and Roussanne interacted with a new team member this vintage – a French oak Foudre (that’s a fancy word for oak cask) that we are excited to add to the fermentation team! You can’t go wrong drinking Epoch White now or later with some age.”
