90pts Wilfred Wong
The Conundrum White Wine, a unique wine in the marketplace, enjoys excellent popularity. The 2018 vintage is delicious as expected. This wine is aromatic, delightful, and bright. Its alluring aromas of candied apple and flowers stay smooth and long on the palate. Enjoy it with appetizers on the deck. (Tasted: May 10, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
A soft gentle hue, this wine has a fresh, delicate nose with a trace of the tropical scents of flower blossoms mingling with orange, honeysuckle and a touch of lemon. Entry on the palate is vibrant, with flavors of mandarin orange and a lively acidity that gives this wine a serious dimension. The combination of tropical notes alongside citrus is emblematic of white grapes grown in cooler regions of California and provides a singular character. Bright acidity carries through to the long finish.
