2005 Conundrum Wines White Table Wine
Whomever told me years ago that this wine wouldn’t age more than 2 years was insane. At over 5 years old now, this aged perfectly, and in all actuality, I wish that I had some more of these older ones. Unscrewed and poured tonight on the bistro with grilled tuna and homemade scalloped potatoes, this was a great crowd pleaser.
Nice sweet and floral nose, with lots of tropical passion fruit, honeysuckle, pear, peach nectar, lemon, lime, and melon. There were also nice hints of lemon grass and green apple! On the palate, what can you say other than smooth? This was a very nice treat, with a good sweetness and acidity to it. This wine has come together perfectly, and you couldn’t ask for a better wine for that this is. More tropical fruits on the palate, with a jammy, nectarish feel on the palate. Some peach rounds this out, and the finish is short and pleasant.
All in all, a crisp and refreshing summer simmer that can be enjoyed by most. This is a must have in our cellar! 90 points! Cheers!

Born in Illinois, I spent my younger years as a local Chicago Foodie checking out restaurants in the city, and working as a waiter at many of the finest restaurants in the suburbs of Chicago. Look for me visiting a restaurant near you, or at one of the many local wine offlines throughout New Jersey
