2015 Obsession Symphony
85% Symphony, 15% Chenin Blanc
The Kautz family has the most significant plantings of this unique grape variety, planted primarily in Lodi. Created at the University of California at Davis in 1948 by Dr. Harold Olmo, Symphony is a cross between Muscat of Alexandria and Grenache Gris. This grape thrives in the mineral rich clay and fine sandy loam soils of Mokelumne River sub-appellation of Lodi. Vineyards were planted between 1998-2005, which offers a selection of maturity.
Obsession Symphony is a seductively aromatic wine with captivating aromas of gardenia, honeysuckle and star jasmine. Flavors of this extremely enjoyable wine are tropical with peaches, pineapple and a hint of ginger, finishing off crisp and clean.
Food Pairing Notes
Obsession Symphony is an ideal complement to many types of cuisine, especially ones that are on the spicy side. Symphony is exceptional with Pad Thai, hot curry and jalapenos. However, it is a wonderful aperitif, paired with melons & prosciutto or served with grilled fruits. A complex wine with a truly diverse range of modern cuisine!
