Zesty, mineral-laden, and uber bright, the 2021 Epoch White is as refreshing as walking on the beach after the rain. Bursting with aroma and flavor that are equal in intensity and balanced from start to finish, this wine exudes lime, lemon, tangerine, crisp white peach, crushed gravel, flint, honeysuckle blossom, fresh cut hay, candle wax, vanilla bean, and powdered sugar. Dots of texture pick up on the back palate, adding to the wine’s complexity. It is an experience to watch Epoch’s White evolve and develop over time, and this wine should continue to impress and move the needle for the potential of Rhône white blends for 10-plus years.
