This delightful blend of sauvignon blanc, viognier, semillon, pinot blanc, orange muscat and muscat canelli is the type of wine I revel in — it doesn’t follow any recipe or rules, but is created anew each year based on what the vintage and the terroir provide.
As you would guess from the blend, the wine is floral and richly fruit-forward, with some tropical (mango) notes and a bit of sweetness on the finish. Fans of Conundrum should appreciate this as well. It should pair nicely with spicy dishes, though I warn you: It goes down quickly by itself.
