The San Francisco Chronicle named Rob and Sara Hammelman's Sand-Reckoner Vineyards' Malvasia Bianca as one the top 100 wines in the country for the second time. 
This aromatic grape could be Arizona's great hope, certainly based on Sand-Reckoner's efforts. A day soaking on skins and fermentation in old barrels provides the seriousness found in great dry Alsatian Muscat: intense blossom aromas, plus a chaparral-like woodsy side, rose petal and dried pear. It's densely flavored and bone-dry, full of rich orange and ripe tree fruit flavors.
You can taste the Arizona wine at Proper or buy a bottle the next time you're at Whole Foods Market on 5555 East River Road. You can get more information about the Sand-Reckoner Vineyards and wine selections on their website and Facebook page.
