Conundrum's success as a unique, complex blend of white grapes from California continues with the 2007 vintage in this fresh, lively, deeply-flavored wine.
This is the first vintage to be produced at the new production-only Conundrum Winery in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County. The wine's core profile remains thoroughly Californian, with Sauvignon Blanc grapes from the Napa Valley, Muscat Canelli from Tulare county on the Central Coast, and Chardonnay and Viognier from our vineyards in Monterey County. The "puzzle" of Conundrum lies partly in guessing the range of grape varieties used, because its exact composition is never revealed.
About one-quarter of the wine lots were fermented in stainless steel in order to preserve their individual fruit characteristics. The remaining lots were fermented in a combination of new and seasoned oak barrels for up to ten months.
Conundrum is an excellent food wine that can be enjoyed with wide variety of international cuisines and a whole range of courses. from appetizers through dessert. To fully enjoy its aromas and flavors, the wine is best served slightly chilled.
