Incognito White 2010

Incognito White 750ML 2010      
Sku: 20138

This wine was awarded "Best Rhone in the World" as a Roussanne at the 2000 Los Angeles International Wine Competition. However, using DNA testing, U.C. Davis later determined that this unique grape is a rare clone of Viognier that mysteriously appeared in California during the past decade and is not, in fact, a Roussanne after all. The phantom clone originated somewhere in the Chateauneuf du Pape region of the Rhone Valley in France, then mistakenly sold to the grower - the talented Mr. Ripkin - as Roussanne, who, finally, sold the resulting grapes to Michael~David Vineyards. The rest is history! Incognito's grapes are grown in the Ripken Vineyard, east of the Carquinez Straits in the Sacramento River Delta region of California. Warm days and cool evenings - reminiscent of the clone's native Rhone Valley - produce the powerful and intense fruit with a sultry body that characterizes this wine, making it unlike any other Viognier.

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Oct 2012)
The 2010 Incognito white, a concoction of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Muscat and Viognier aged in stainless steel, offers a big perfume of tropical fruit and honey. This fruit bomb is light on its feet and its crisp acidity nicely balances the intensely fruity character. It should be drunk during its first year of life to take advantage of its lovely perfume.
