The 2008 vintage boasts flavors and aromas of citrus and tropical fruits expressed
over a bright, yet rich mouthfeel. The wine was predominately fermented in stainless
steel to retain the fruit aromatics and a portion was barrel fermented to increase the
texture of the wine. We also use a clone of Sauvignon Blanc called Sauvignon Musqué
to add a hint of orange blossom and tangerine. The Fumé will pair great with food, but
is also great for relaxing poolside.
A round, yet vibrant wine, The Fumé goes down easy with oysters on the half-shell by
the dozen. Not shy around seafood of any kind.
