CONUNDRUM...now in HALF BOTTLES (375 ml)...The PERFECT WINE for ALL 0CCASIONS ...by Philip S. Kampe

CONUNDRUM has always been known, to me, as a 'CULT' Wine.

As a wine consultant at SPARROW Wine in Hoboken to hanging out at SAM's WINE in Chicago, I have found that CONUNDRUM has the same appeal by the younger, hipper generation of years past to the present generation.

One of the mysteries of CONUNDRUM is guessing the white grape profile. The profile is never revealed percentage wise. This unique, complex blend is made of California white grapes, including Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat, Chardonnay, Viognier and Semillion.

The composition is never revealed, thus making this wine a curious wine to drink. I believe, this single fact has created the 'Cult' following.

CONUNDRUM is a wine that can be enjoyed with most foods, due to the diversity of the grapes used. The wines aroma often changes, but, notably apricot, lime and vanilla dominate. On the palate, tropical fruit and melon ceate a soft, acidic, crisp flavor that has an extra long finish.

CONUNDRUM has started to market this wine in Half-Bottles, thus making the wine a perfect choice for summer. Whether you go to Central Park or Tanglewood, the 375 ml size, with the screw top make this wine approachable.

The wine is affordable at around $10 per 375 ml bottle and under $20 for the normal 750 ml bottle.

I have already filled my small soda cooler with CONUNDRUM instead of beer. The small size of the bottle really makes it handy for all social occassions, especially BBQ's and picnics. And in my case, my High School Reunion (New Orleans) later this summer.

Your local wine shop should sell CONUNDRUM in the 750 ml size. Ask them to carry the 375 ml size. It will be your summer lifesaver!!

If you can't find the 375 ml size locally, visit http://www.whatsyourconundrum.com/ to learn where to buy this wine.
