Symphony ( 0 )
A white wine with the incredibly intense aromas of melon, grapefruit, mango, peach, banana and papaya. The fruity character picks up a strong backbone from the good acidity, and hint of tannin, carried over from the Grenache Gris grape.

I am in the clearing stage of a 6-gallon batch of Symphony. The reason I was asking if any one has purchased it before is because I wanted to taste it. I have been told that it is an excellent fruity wine intense tropical fruity aroma. I guess I will pay special attention for Ironstone Vineyards when searching. Thanks number2.

Ask a big liquor store in your area.
We almost got a ton of Sympnony grapes this fall. Unfortunatle a small winery came in and bought the vineyards entire crop. Nuts....we got Voignier instead.

I picked up a bottle last weekend....didn't care for it at all. The WE Symphony is much more to my liking....dry.

I am in Jacksonville Florida so my grocery store is Publix. I got Baywood Cellars Late Harvest Symphony there last year but it sold out fast and this year has not yet hit due to it being late harvest. I just bought some Ironstone Vineyards "Obsession" California Symphony 2004 at ABC liquor store for just over 10 dollars but I haven't tried it yet. The Baywood Cellars website describes the Symphony Late Harvest as being an imitation of a Sauterne style wine and I am thinking about trying some of them. Sauterne is one of five towns in the Bordeaux region of France where they make that type of wine so I am finding that there are many options. The problem I am having is that I am a working class person and can't afford the 20 dollar and up price tag on the Sauterne.
Too much information? Hehe...sorry, but I am trying to find the same kind of wine also and not having much luck and I saw this post while doing web searchs for Symphony grapes.

After I read the grape does well in Hot Climates It got me interested.(Maybe somthing to grow)
I think Quite a few wineries grow it. ---
I found A link with about a dozen places(States), but cant find How to see the wineries.
After I searched for It This is what Ironstone Vineyards Said (On a different site)

I am very familer with the Symphony wine as well as the history of the grape.
here is a link to Cameo Vineyards Symphony, there is a story about it there.......
It is a wonderful wine, pairing well with Chicken,fish, sushi, Cheese and crackers, and the best is just to sit down and enjoy it all by itself and try to identify each distinct aroma and flavor.
It begins with the aromas of a Muscat grape, and the aromasare orange blossoms, honey and spice..starts out slightly sweet with flavors of stone fruits, floral and sometimes a green apple tast ( rarely) and then ends on a mildy crisp, tart and dry finish, thus showing the traits of both of its parents, the Muscat of Alexandria and the Grenach Gree.
Only a few wineries use the Symphony grape as a Varietal wine, the majority use it as a blending wine. I know Cameo Vineyards in California makes it, Ironstone, Michael David Winery in Lodi, Ca and Volcano Winery in Hawaii, are the ones that come to mind.
