This full bodied, dry wine has a rich mouth feel with well integrated flavors of oak, pear, melon, and citrus fruit. Our Amador Fume enhances the enjoyment of grilled swordfish, or lemon-seasoned chicken breasts. The wine also stands up well to spicy preparations such as Jamaican jerked chicken or southern Italian pasta and vegetable dishes.
Located in the picturesque foothills east of Sacramento with a spectacular view of the Sierras, Amador Foothill Winery produces classic vineyard-designated Zinfandel and is among the pioneers making Sangiovese in California. Owner-winemakers Katie Quinn and Ben Zeitman also produce barrel-fermented Fume Blanc and Semillon at this 8,000 case facility.
