Tasting Notes

This wine is delicious with aromas and flavors of pink grapefruit, pineapple, lemon grass, lychee, kiwi, honey dew, orange blossom, guava, white peach and lemon-lime with a touch of minerality. This wine has bright acidity and crisp freshness from the cool, stainless steel tank fermentation, while the subtle oak character from neutral French oak barrels adds body, complexity and depth.
Winemaker Notes

This wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc grapes from various appellations in Sonoma County - Dry Creek, Alexander and Russian River Valleys. When the Sauvignon Blanc grapes arrive at the winery, each lot is gently crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks for 48 hours of cold settling. The juice is either transferred to stainless steel tanks or older French oak barrels for fermentation. The wine in barrels is sur lie aged and stirred every week for 10 weeks. Individual lots are handled separately until final blending.
Food Pairing

Our Fumé Blanc pairs well with simple seafood and poultry dishes, and also holds up nicely with white meats such as veal and pork. This wine has lively flavors that go well with spicy and ethnic cuisines such as Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Korean, Mexican and Southwestern dishes.
