Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from Dry Creek opens with a ripe yellow grapefruit with hints of line. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, acidic and crisp. The flavor profile is tart grapefruit with notes of minerality. I also detected hints of lime and tangerine. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This wine would pair well steamed mussels. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2013 Fume Blanc offers a distinct aromatic and flavor profile that sets it apart from the competition. In the glass, Meyer lemon, kefir lime, fresh citrus and grassy characters are immediately evident. The cold stainless steel fermentation preserves the vibrancy in the wine – a characteristic that we love and is often compared to a quivering race horse. The palate repeats vibrant aromatic themes making the wine mouthwatering and delicious. Underlying minerals and wet stone provide a seamless core of acidity and backbone that are hallmarks of our Fume Blanc. A warm summer day along with a cold bottle of Fume Blanc and a bucket of fresh oysters can only be described as pure bliss.
