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 a Lodi grower as Roussanne, who finally sold the resulting grapes to Michael David Winery. The rest is history!
"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."
