Fresh aromas of lime, guava and lemon verbena anticipate crisp, mouthwatering flavors of ripe honeydew, lemongrass and honeysuckle with subtle spice notes. The ample mouthfeel and creamy texture is enlivened by zesty acidity and lingering citrus flavors.
Blend: 94% Sauvignon Blanc, 6% Semillon
"This is rounded by oak aging, which brings up scents of fennel and beeswax, giving the finish an earthy impression. The fruit is brisk with lemon pith flavors and pinpoint acidity. A dark, savory white for braised pork with fennel."
Wine & Spirits
"Fume Blanc is just another name for Sauvignon Blanc, and this is a delicious one. Dry and racy in acidity, it has deep citrus, tropical fruit and gooseberry flavors. At this price, it's one of the best Sauvignon Blancs on the market."
"America's original Fume Blanc is still right on target; bright and juicy with smooth texture and lovely citrus and orange blossoms; silky and long with great balance and freshness."
