Wine Review: This is a more delicate styled Sauvignon Blanc, which is pale straw colored and has grapefruit, fresh cut grass, honeydew melon and wet slate aromas. On the palate, it is medium-minus bodied with medium acidity and is dry and has a satiny mouthfeel. I found flavors of grapefruit, white peach, sugar snap peas and jasmine with integrated minerality. The lengthy finish has some white pepper spiciness to it. This would be a nice bottle to take on a picnic along with cold fried chicken. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: Our 48th vintage of Fumé Blanc is our "house" style of Sauvignon Blanc. At first swirl, aromatics of Meyer lemon, kaffir lime, guava, pineapple and grapefruit leap forward from the glass with nuances of cucumber, lemongrass and white pepper. On the palate, the wine is bright and refreshing with flavors of Meyer lemon, kaffir lime, passionfruit and white peach with underlying minerality and hints of fresh cut grass and jalapeño. This wine is mouthwatering and delicious with lovely intensity and a clean, pure finish.
