Calliope began in the late 1990s as the winery for Cherie and Ross Mirko. After they moved to New Zealand to pursue winemaking opportunities there, the brand went silent until a couple of years ago, when Burrowing Owl revived it with this line of delicious and affordable wines. This blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris opens with aromas of herbs, Granny Smith apple, gooseberry, spearmint and lychee. On the palate, it offers flavors of apple, mint, honeydew melon, dried apricot and mineral. This is a superb wine to pair with shellfish, pork, chicken or salmon.
