Winemaker's Notes

"Our Fumé Blanc is mostly stainless steel tank fermented to promote the varietal flavors that each vintage offers us from the vineyard. A small portion of the blend is barrel fermented in neutral small oak cooperage to increase the texture of the final wine without adding oak flavors or aromas. Our goal is to create a wine with great Sauvignon Blanc rich fruit intensity."
-Winemaker David Ready Jr.

Fumé Blanc has been a bright star in Murphy-Goode's portfolio since 1985, their first vintage. Superior fruit and minimal handling are the keys to our success. Here is a mouthful of refreshing fruit flavors - citrus, nectarines and white peaches - with an aromatic hint of lemongrass. A blending component of Sauvignon Musqué adds floral components and rounds the wine's texture.

Murphy-Goode Fumé Blanc is an appealing and popular wine with appetizers, salads, grilled chicken or fish, light sauces and lighter dishes in general. The wine's succulent fruit and good acidity complement fresh seafood, particularly shellfish.

For the money a really great wine. Friendly. Tastes best slightly warmer than it comes from the frig.

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
