Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.

Not What You Expect

Chateau d' Abalone Verdejo. It just sounds sexy.

What? What's wrong? You look disappointed. Were you expecting someone more exotic? Because of my name? Well, sorry. It's actually pronounced Ab-uh-alone-y Ver-dee-joe.

And yes, this is my chateau, or chatty-you, as I pronounce it. No, it's not very big. It was built in the 1300s or something. People were smaller then. But it was up for auction and the price was right so I thought, hey, why not?

I know. You probably expected something a little bit more extravagant. I'm really sorry. It's just that it's hard to really get this stuff across in the 156 characters that singlemingle.com allows.

But hey, don't leave just yet. There's some cool stuff about me. For example, I have my own wine. Check it out. It's got flavors of green apple, mineral, grapefruit and lemon with good acidity and a very long finish.

Yeah, not bad, huh? So, how about a second date...

Features

2012 Chateau d' Abalone Verdejo, Paso Robles 750ml 3-Pack

Green apple, mineral, grapefruit and lemon with good acidity and a very long finish. Stillman Brown always said that Paso whites were best before they were bottled, and this is the proof, six weeks from harvest to bottling. 

Specs

  • Varietal Composition: 89% Verdejo, 11% Poubelle Blanc**
  • Alcohol: 12.7%
  • pH: 3.55
  • TA: 8.1 g/L
  • Production: 97 cases bottled from 1.6 acres, 2nd year graftover from SB to Verdejo
  • Tank fermented, aged one month in French oak puncheons, bottled

The first Verdejo* in San Luis Obispo County, and possibly the first from any coastal county in the state, this Spanish variety known for dry Rueda whites (thanks to Emile Peynaud, Stillman Brown's first wine instructor) proved to be very low yielding and thick-skinned in his friend’s Paso Robles vineyard, so much so that an acre of vines made less than a hundred cases of wine.

* Not to be confused with Verdelho, Vermentino, Viognier or the V-1 buzz bomb
** A little joke. Sauvignon Blanc (added to keep storage puncheons topped for one month)

Founded:

Stillman Brown

Zeppelin Winery is a very small producer of super-premium wines, based on the Central Coast of California. Founded in 2009 by winemaker Stillman Brown of Red Zeppelin Winery and wine veteran Dan Lewis (he's the office guy) they produce tiny lots of Syrah and other misunderstood varietals, with almost invariably insane labels.  Most can only be purchased directly, but once in a while they emerge into the light of day.
