TASTING NOTE: In the movie Inception, Ariadne (Ellen Page) nearly tumbles over the edge of a “paradox” in the form of a magical staircase. This sweet-and-sour wine poses a similar quandary for the taste buds, hitting the palate juicy and off-dry before jolting to a mouth-puckeringly tart, tangy finish. In between is a montage of lemon chiffon, applesauce, Asian pear, fresh lime and grapefruit. The grapes used are kept off-label, but Norm Hardie is known to cultivate Riesling, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. Sip this, chilled, with fish tacos or summer salads.
