    Winemaker Notes

    What an amazingly versatile wine! Clean, fresh, and fruity, this Fumé Blanc is a great choice when you simply want to enjoy a perfectly chilled glass of white wine. However, it is equally good as a companion with food due to its delicate and undemanding nature. The 1998 vintage may be a little less herbaceous and a little more fruity than usual, but you will recognize it as a classic Grgich Hills Sauvignon Blanc. It has a very delicate perfume of wildflowers in the glass, followed by long, lingering flavors which are definitely on the citrusy side, reminiscent of lemon or grapefruit. This wine will prove to be very compatible with Asian dishes, particularly the fragrant, mildly spicy cuisine of Thailand. With a limited amount of bottle age, it will become even more mellow and appealing.

    Mike Grgich first gained international recognition at the celebrated "Paris Tasting" of 1976 in which a panel of eminent French judges swirled, sniffed, and sipped an array of the fabled white Burgundies of France and a small sampling of upstart Chardonnays from the Napa Valley. When the results where in, the French judges were shocked: they had chosen Mike’s 1973 Montelena Chardonnay as the finest white wine in the world. Mon Dieu! The results stunned the international wine establishment and immediately earned Mike Grgich a reputation as one of the greatest winemakers in the world.

    Today, Grgich remains committed to making distinctive wines with quality, consistency and longevity. Grgich is proud that world leaders such as Presidents Reagan and Clinton, Queen Elizabeth II and French President François Mitterrand chose our wines to serve at state dinners, but are just as proud that every single day discriminating wine drinkers count on Grgich Hills to turn their own dinners into special occasions.
