Murphy-Goode Winery has been a pioneer in producing Fumé
Blanc since 1985. Superior fruit and minimal
handling are the keys to their success. Here is a mouthful of
refreshing fruit flavors of citrus, nectarines and white peaches,
with an aromatic hint of lemongrass. A blending component of
12.2% Sauvignon Musqué adds texture and hints of orange
blossom and tangerine.
Winemaker David Ready Jr. comments, "The 2005 vintage gave us beautiful fruit that deserved full
expression. We fermented the wine in both stainless steel (71%)
to retain the acidity and bright fruit components and neutral
French oak (29%) to add texture and body."
Murpphy-Gooded Fumé Blanc is an appealing and popular wine with
appetizers, salads, grilled chicken or fish. The wine's succulent
fruit and good acidity complement fresh seafood and is also just
perfect on its own.
