On the nose, stone fruits, pineapple, green melon, soft chalkiness with spring flowers.
The body is round, full & gluey. The acidity is slightly off. Stone fruits, pineapple, green melon, Meyer lemon, just a touch of green apple skin, edgy minerality, powdery chalkiness with spring flowers.

A wonderful surprise! Really a good white from Pessac-Leognan made by the Bordeaux Sciences Agro a part of Bordeaux University. This mix of Sauvignon blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Sémillon is just perfectly balanced. The nose is rich and complex with grapefruit and flower touches! Just amazing, I am going to buy much more of this one! — 11 days ago

This wine is a full of contradictions. On one hand it shows tons of sweet citrus (grapefruit, tangerine, lemon pith) and hints of vanilla. On the other it shows more savory spice notes - basil - yes, BASIL - and hints of pepper. This so layered and complex. Creamy, polished and drinking so well (just as @David L said it would be). The extra barrel age and higher amount of Semillon shows. This was elegant and fun - totally delicious and great on a hot afternoon. — 4 days ago
In 1989 Conundrum was born, started by Charlie Wagner's grandfather mixing wines & ended up with this unique, different and interesting white-wine blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier, Semillon & Muscat Canelli. Straw yellow with complex aromas from citrus to sweet. Palate showed tastes of sweet tropical fruit, ripe peaches, apricots and melons, with a touch of unusual spices, with an edge, very original. The finish is about medium and paired well with food. Nice! Consistent with last 3 vintages. — 6 days ago
