Wine Review: This almost clear Sauvignon Blanc opens with a very fragrant peach bouquet with a hint of wet stone and lime. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mineral infused mild lime with notes of grapefruit. The finish is dry and quite refreshing. Pair this summer quaffer with steamed mussels in a garlic broth. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: At first swirl, the 2009 Fume Blanc presents bright aromas of lemon peel and passion fruit. After several minutes in the glass, additional aromas of pineapple and grapefruit shine through. On the palate, the wine continues the refreshing theme of citrus elements, along with a wonderful backbone of minerals that provide dimension and weight to the palate. Subtle, nuanced, and showing true varietal character, this delicious wine finishes crisp and juicy proving again just how versatile Sauvignon Blanc can be.
