Product Description

Making a consistently great Fum Blanc (Sauvignon Blanc) requires paying keen attention to ripeness. Picking at optimal ripeness makes a wine that tastes like a recently ripened peach or guava fruit with refreshing acidity. The 2005 Fum Blanc has aromas of grapefruit and guava, along with sage, peppermint and a hint of smokiness. On the palate are varietal flavors of grapefruit, with a bit of sage, coconut and dried fig. The wine is crisp, smoky and round with moderate weight and richness contributed by the Semillon (25%) added to the blend. The winemakers suggest paring the Fum Blanc with chicken salad or raw oysters.
