Winery Notes:
Description: 
Brilliant straw yellow with a green shimmer. Quite pronounced and expressive aroma with flowery and somewhat spicy notes. Rich flavoured in the mouth, with a slight smokiness at the back and a good, fresh finish. When properly cellared, this will drink well for 2 to 4 years.

winemaker’s notes:Generous aromas of fruit and toasty oak entice the senses as you first encounter this Chardonnay. Green apples and juicy pears give way to elegant hints of lemon meringue, and finish ripe and refreshing on the palate. Created by aging on the lees, the rich and velvety mouthfeel adds complexity to the fruit, allowing the flavors to sink softly into toasty notes of American oak. The finish, lingering and graceful, is coupled by a mouthwatering acidity that creates a longing for just one more sip.

Fresh, unadorned style, with a floral frame to the light-bodied persimmon, pear and green almond notes. Shows good dry cut through the finish.

winemaker’s notes:On the steep hills above the winding Mosel river grow the world’s most celebrated Riesling vines. From their noble grapes, we craft a crisp, refreshing and elegant wine. The balanced taste profile of Clean Slate is created by carefully selecting grapes from vineyards throught the Mosel. Grapes from the Lower Mosel provide mineral notes, grapes from the Middle Mosel create a hint of spiciness and grapes from the Upper Mosel supply fresh, peach flavors. The result is clean, fresh flavor that is delicious with food and perfect to share with friends.

winemaker’s notes:

This unique, non-traditional white wine blend was created to offer full-flavored fruit and enough complexity to match the creative dishes being offered by today’s generation of chefs.

Conundrum can be served with every course from appetizer to dessert and pairs beautifully with spicy foods and full-flavored Asian cuisine. The “conundrum,” or puzzle, of this wine is in guessing which grapes make up the blend.

While the exact blend remains a secret, the 2011 Conundrum delivers its promise of being an exotic, food-friendly white wine that you can’t quite categorize. It’s neither too rich nor too light, with just the right balance of extract, acidity, and spice. It consists of both popular and esoteric white grapes, including–but in no special order–Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Viognier, and Muscat Canelli. The various lots are fermented separately so the optimal and most exciting blend can be determined when the wine is ready to be bottled. Some lots are aged in stainless steel while others are aged in a combination of new and used French oak barrels. Thus the final final cuvée exhibits the best of what both methods impart in harmonious balance. Wine Spectator wrote of the 2010 vintage: “Wonderfully effusive, a bouquet of honeysuckle and jasmine gives way to ripe, fleshy peach, pear, tangerine and melon notes. Rich flavors and supple textures are matched by a refreshing acidity.”

The perfect light and fruity white wine. The bright acidity balances the subtle fruitiness and medium sweetness. Nice bouquet of lemons and apricots. Good as an aperitif or with light food.

Wine Review: This yellow colored Riesling opens with a ripe peach bouquet with a hint of pear. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, dense and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a ripe pear with notes of peach and nicely integrated minerality. I also detected a hint of white pepper. The finish remains sweet and its flavors linger for quite some time. This wine would pair well with spicy Thai dishes.
