Winemaker's Notes

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.
