Seven Daughters white wine

What does it say about me that I actually enjoyed this wine?
I was on my way to an Asian BYO, and I didn't have enough time to drive over the PA state line into Delaware to shop for wine to bring along, so I reluctantly headed for a nearby PA State Store. I HATE shopping in these stores, but that's beside the point. So as I perused the one small section of whites, I came across this wine on sale for $12.99. It's a blend of Riesling, Symphony (whatever that is), Chardonnay, Orange Muscat, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, and French Colombard. Since I often choose Riesling or Gewurztraminer to accompany Asian fare, I thought this wine might be acceptable. I must admit, I was VERY pleasantly surprised.
Has anyone ever tried this wine? What did you think about it?
Yes, that's the label. I'll buy it again, too; I'll look for it next time I'm at Total Wine.
When I first read the label, my thought was that this was a wine made from all the leftover grapes that didn't make it into the better wines. And maybe it is. But it really was quite quaffable. I noticed another white blend, "Conundrum," on my way out of the store that day, but it was nearly twice the price of Seven Daughters.
I tried to search it on Total Wine's site, but it wasn't there. I'm sure that's where I got it, though. If you call the store, I'm sure they can check their in-store computer which seems much more accurate. According to the website, www.7daughters.com, they have a red blend as well. The white blend was one of those wines I picked up b/c I thought the label was kind of cool and IIRC it was around $10. Figured if it was awful I hadn't spent much on it. I like to go to DE and pick up some low cost bottles I've never had before in addition to my usuals. They have such a great selection so I always find new stuff. I'm pretty sure I saw "Conundrum" at the Bryn Mawr wine store and it was about $14 or $15... as a promo I think.
