EPOKALE Südt....

EPOKALE Südt....

Epokale was the first Italian white wine to be awarded 100 points by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. This wine contradicts the classic idea of a South Tyrolean<br />Gewürztraminer, redefines boundaries and impressively shows what this great variety is capable of.<br />Mild temperatures in spring brought about an early start of vegetation. The summer months were decidedly sunny and dry. Cool nights ensured that the physiological<br />ripeness could nevertheless develop in a balanced way. Thanks to a cool September, the ripening process was delayed so that an excellent harvest with optimally ripened<br />grapes took place. The elegant white wines show a pronounced juiciness, variety of aromas and depth, the intense reds offer plenty of fruit and character.<br /><br />Grape variety: Gewürztraminer<br />Yield: 29 hl/hectare<br />Altitude: 420 - 440 m<br />Exposure: south-east<br />Harvest: End of October<br />Soil: calcareous gravel with clay soil, subsoil rocks of porphyry<br />Age of the vines: oldest Guyot stock, from over 20 years to almost 30 years old<br />Climate: extreme interplay between sunny days dominated by the Mediterranean climate and night hours dominated by cold downdrafts from the surrounding mountains<br /><br />Alcohol: 12.50 % vol.<br />Total acidity: 5.1 g/l<br />Residual sugar: 55 g/l<br />

What gives this area its unique characteristics is the<br />microclimate created by the Garonne and Ciron rivers and its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean.<br />grapes, creating a unique concentration.

The Sauternes and Barsac AOCs are located south of Bordeaux, specifically in the Graves. Both AOCs date back to 1936. The area known as Sauternais comprises five<br />communes: Barsac, Bommes, Fargues, Preignac and Sauternes; while that of Barsac exclusively comprises the commune from which it takes its name. It is worth noting<br />that these regulations allow Barsac producers to name their wines both Barsac and Sauternes AOC (both are often mentioned on the label), while Sauternes producers can<br />only name their wines Sauternes AOC. The area's soils are of alluvial origin with a good presence of limestone; what gives this area its unique characteristics is the<br />microclimate created by the Garonne and Ciron rivers and its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean: these presences are decisive in favouring the development of pourriture noble,<br />noble rot, on the grapes, creating a unique concentration. The varieties used for the AOC Sauternes and Barsac are: Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle.<br />The quality of the wines produced in these areas has a long history, in fact already in 1855 Napoleon III, drawing up the first classification of Crus, recognised Château<br />d'Yquem as the only Premier Cru Supérieur located outside the Medoc, followed by two other categories: Premier Cru (11 Châteaux) and Deuxième Cru (15 Châteaux).<br /><br />Varieties: Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadelle.<br /><br />Vineyards: The Château Rieussec vineyards extend to the border between Fargues and Sauternes: it is one of the largest estates in Sauternes and Barsac and covers 93<br />hectares.
