Epogee is a 100% Hunter blend; the titan in our white wine line-up. The colour shows bright straw green, with a deeper core of yellow. Bold aromatic signatures: powerful golden peach and ripe nectarine at its core, with musk, yellow jasmine, white honey and pear all combining with a rich perfumed harmony.
The palate is all about plushness, velvet depth and texture; Viognier (30%) delivers a luxurious layer of golden fruit silkiness. Finer waxy texture, pear and yellow fruit boldness are signatures of Marsanne (30%) and significantly Roussanne (40%) delivers cashew-like creaminess to the finish. A beautiful and natural culmination of fruit umami and barrel fermentation.
