2007 Conundrum California White Table Wine

SKU #1042942

A branch of the Caymus family of wines, the Conundrum is a real puzzle of a wine, piecing together distinctive white varietals for a truly unqiue, lively, full-flavored wine. The 2007 vintage is the first to be made at Conundrum's new winery in the Santa Lucia Highlands. It combines sauvignon blanc, muscat canelli, chardonnay and viognier to great success - about a quarter is fermented in stainless, the rest in new and seasoned oak barrels - and sealed with a screw-cap to lock in freshness. And that's exactly what you get from the second you open the bottle: green apple, tangerine and sweet white flowers envelope you. In the mouth, flavors of stone fruit, ripe melon and citrus are balanced by hints of vanilla. Theres plently of acidity and a creamy texture on the mid-palate that make this a great aperitif or complement to salads, spicy fare and even fruit desserts. According to Wine Spectator: "Bursting with fragrant honeysuckle and jasmine, with ripe melon, peach, nectarine and honeycomb grace notes. Intensely flavored, with a refreshing acidity. Drink now."

But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
