Product Overview

Taking "inspiration" from the Châteauneuf-du-Pape style white Rhône blend, the 2018 Epiphany Inspiration White Wine is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Viognier, and Marsanne sourced from estate vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley. Boasting bold, tropical aromas, notes of white flowers, jasmine, and honeydew melon marry well with vanilla, nectarine, and orange marmalade. Tangerine, vanilla, and almond flavors flood the palate followed by hints of honeysuckle and lemon cream. The fruitiness and fatness of this blend comes from its Grenache Blanc base, Roussanne contributes fresh peach aromas, while Viognier and a touch of Marsanne add acidity, with floral and mineral notes. Pair with shellfish, chicken, pork and vegetable dishes prepared with savory butter or cream sauces.

"Waxy aromas of paraffin and lemon peel are lifted by a touch of plumeria on the nose of this bottling. It's vibrant on the palate, with lively flavors of lime zest and chalk, making for an engaging sip whose structure lasts for days." -MK, 9/1/2020

"The 2018 Inspiration is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Viognier and Marsanne. Apricot, candied orange peel, yellow flowers and a kiss of sweet oak give Inspiration its distinctly exotic feel. Readers will find plenty to like in this flamboyant white." -AG, Aug/2020
