Conundrum Conundrum White Blend 2009
Wine Spectator: This delicious blend of five white wine grapes (Chardonnay, Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, and Muscat) is one of the best of its type from California. It's a complex wine, with an array of ripe, concentrated flavors--pear, honey, fig, vanilla, peach and nectarine, finishing with lots of character and a dash of spice. Delicious.
What is that wonderfully robust, floral and bright tropical taste? Is it green apple, tangerine or honeysuckle? Could it possibly be apricot, melon, pear or light vanilla? That’s the Conundrum. Our proprietarily blend of California white grapes create a lush, creamy texture that leads to the mouth-watering question, “Mmmm, what’s in there?” We’re not telling. Can you guess?
I really like this - a bit sweet for a sipper I think (my tastes) but would taste fantastic with salmon or . Smooth, with fresh bouquet. Bigger mouth-feel than I was expecting. Taste reminds me a bit of Ironstone "symphony", but smoother and bigger - not as acidic. Muscat definitely dominates (honey sweet) but is lighter and more acidic than muscat. Really great! White wine lovers will love this one - especially if they prefer a wine that is a bit on the sweet side.
Great white blend, smooth and refreshing white. can be expensive if not found on sale.

External Reviews for Conundrum Conundrum White Blend
Floral bouquet nose with a dominance of honeysuckle. Muscat is the defining/alluring factor in the aroma of this wine. Enters round with a Chardonnay weight to it then quickly lightens up to reveal the additional varietals. Sauvignon Blanc adds an herbal element while the Viognier adds a spicy character. The Chardonnay brings weight mid palate and Muscat adds an undeniable honey character to finish things off.
