Vintages Wine Panel:This fascinating off-dry wonder brilliantly blends together Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay, Viognier and Muscat Canelli. The amazing thing about this wine is that on the nose you can get a sense of every grape used. Aromas and flavors of peach, jasmine, melons, pears, vanilla, grass and more intertwine in this multi-layered and well-balanced white. My note: Lovely and wild and exotic notes of lychees, rose petal, orange zest and honeysuckle blossoms. What a wine! Drink it as a fascinating aperitif or pair it with so many dishes. This wine is part of the Vintages Essentials Collection.

Bella Mcdowell rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

One of my favorite restaurants has this wine and I always order it. The Conundrum has a floral nose with notes of peach, vanilla, and pear. Tastes of citrus, honeysuckle, rose, and melons. I recently found this wine for $18 a bottle which is a steal for a wine this balanced and complex.
Vera Czerny rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lovely 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.

Off dry

Aged in oak

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
