Mourvèdre

After showcasing Mourvèdre two years in a row as our 2013 and 2014 Creativity, we realized we were madly in love this wine and needed to make it a permanent member of our Epoch family.  2015 was our first bottling of Mourvèdre by its own name, and we hope to release it every year if Mother Nature gives us the fruit to do so.  As one would suspect, this wine will always be Mourvèdre dominant (though it may be assisted by small amounts of other varieties depending on the vintage) and will consistently reflect the pure essence and unique quality that makes Mourvedre such a distinct and exciting grape.

MY BIO BY WINEMAKER JORDAN FIORENTINI

Our inaugural Mourvèdre is about as nerdy and hip as a wine can be. Produced from fermenting 100% whole clusters of 75%
Mourvèdre and 25% Grenache together, this wine speaks purity, sense of place and the many different gears Mourvèdre can
deliver. Juicy and spicy, this fun wine oscillates between white pepper, crushed raspberries, autumn leaves, wet rocks and
rose petals.
