Conundrum White 2007
After experimenting with 11 different white wine grapes, we chose the three that we considered the key ingredients, the aromas and flavors that form the foundation of the wine: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and--for its intriguing floral/tropical character--Muscat Canelli. Then, from our "spice cabinet," we added small amounts of Sémillon and Viognier. Already, we were working with flavors and textures that formed a new and unprecedented combination--a conundrum, or puzzle to be teased out by the taster.
Bursting with fragrant honeysuckle and jasmine, with ripe melon, peach, nectarine and honeycomb grace notes. Intensely flavored, with a refreshing acidity.
