Wine Review: This light yellow colored Fume Blanc opens with a pear and mild grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, crisp and a little tangy. The flavor profile is a slightly tart lime with infused minerality and notes of grapefruit. The finish is dry and its remains crisp and refreshing. This wine would pair well with grilled swordfish with a lemon drizzle. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of lime, kiwi, citrus, melon and a touch of grass are complemented by flavors of grapefruit, lemon, mango, and guava in Ferrari-Carano's 2010 Fume Blanc. Cool, stainless steel tank fermentation gives this wine a crisp freshness while the subtle oak character from barrel aging adds complexity and depth. Our Fume Blanc pairs well with simple seafood and poultry dishes. The wine has lively flavors that go well with spicy and ethnic cuisines such as Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Mexican and Southwestern dishes.
