Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from Ferrari Carano opens with a grapefruit and fresh cut grass bouquet with hints of matchstick and lemon. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused lemon-lime blend with notes of white pepper throughout. The finish is dry and refreshing. The Panel thought this Sauvignon Blanc would pair nicely with Chicken Pad Thai. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Ferrari-Carano's 2016 Fume Blanc is a delicious wine with aromas and flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, guava, citrus, lemon grass and a touch of minerality. This wine has bright acidity and crisp freshness from the cool, stainless steel tank fermentation, while the subtle oak character from neutral French oak barrels adds body, complexity and depth. This wine has lively flavors that go well with spicy and ethnic cuisines such as Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Korean, Mexican and Southwestern dishes.
