In 1989, Mr. Wagner was proud to announce the birth of Conundrum white, which was a mysterious blend of white grapes. His wine was considered to be both complex and versatile with food. Often, there were tropical notes, somewhat similar to today’s New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Other days, the bottles had different aromatics.
In 2011, Conundrum red was introduced to the market and like the white, the ever-changing blend of grapes and varied aromatics have made this wine an overnight success.
This is the 25th Anniversary of Conundrum, a wine that will always be part of my life. For under $17 a bottle (red) and $13 (white), I get to tell my Conundrum story to a new group of friends.
In time,this may be their ‘cult’ wine of choice?
