Winemaker's Notes:

This summer quaffer is a revisitation of one of last year’s most popular white wines. The 2006 I, Aurora melded viognier, full of fruit but low on acid, with the high acid and herbal loureiro, and treixadura. The full name was ananagram spelling out the three grapes, in order to include the latter two, which are not yet recognized in the United States as wine varieties. This year’s “Metamorphosis” follows the same premise, but with a slightly different varietal composition. The low acid, but fruitful and floral roussanne replaces the viognier for a slightly lighter, more delicate white with flavors of lime-blossom and mineral, grapefruit zest and bay leaf. The bay leaf, incidentally, comes from loureiro, whose name references its distinct tendency to develop flavors of laurel, another name for the bay tree.
