($20; a blend of "all kinds of things that were planted way back when, but mostly gewurztraminer, trousseau gris and riesling, with some stuff that's almost extinct, like burger and green Hungarian, probably some chasselas and palomino, and so on") Light, greenish gold. Subtly leesy aromas of pineapple, orange rind and pear, with a stony underpinning and a hint of smoke. Quite suave and silky on the palate, with a subtle sweetness to the citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Zesty minerality gives this very dry and understated wine a chewy quality. Finishes with lingering spiciness and echoes of bitter orange and pear skin. I find this really intriguing. Twain-Peterson said that these 60-year-old mystery vines yielded less than a ton per acre in '08.
