What has the winemaker John Bolta said about Conundrum:
“The “puzzle” of Conundrum lies partly in guessing the range of grape varieties we use, because we never reveal its exact composition.
To create the layered flavors that go into the Conundrum blend, we brought in 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.
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.
We continue to have success in the twist-top closure. As a winemaker and someone who insists on wines without faults, I believe this closure is the right tool to protect the aromas and flavors that developed in the vineyards and were preserved in the bottle.” Jon Bolta
Very rich aroma of peaches, apricots and tropical fruit. Slightly sweet wine delivers symphony of fruit flavors on the palate, pear, green melon and touch of vanilla and honey. Rich, creamy texture of wine is perfectly balanced with its natural acidity into a long finish.
