Wine Review: This clear straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a floral and pine resin bouquet with hints of lime zest and white peach tart. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, delicate, and smooth. The flavor profile is green apple and lime blend with notes of almond and green tea. We also detected some hints of salinity and pineapple. The finish is slightly off-dry and its flavors drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this good value and crowd pleasing Fumé Blanc with fish n' chips. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This wine opens with enticing aromas of pineapple, mango, peach, lemon grass, and lychee. The palate offers ripe fruit and crisp citrus flavors of yellow peach, apricot, pear, lime zest, and lemon cream. The Fumé Blanc 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. Our Fumé Blanc pairs well with simple seafood and poultry dishes, and also holds up nicely with veal and pork.
