Wine Review: This pale straw colored “Fume Blanc” is a good value. It opens with a fragrant yellow grapefruit bouquet with a hint of peach pitch and papaya. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, round, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tart yellow grapefruit with notes of minerality, lime, pineapple and a good dose of white pepper. The finish is dry and refreshing. Its flavors and mild acidity fade away nicely. This Sauvignon Blanc is very Asian food friendly. I would pair it with Thai rolls. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: The 2015 Fume Blanc is a beautiful wine that emanates the classic Dry Creek Vineyard "house" style of Sauvignon Blanc. At first swirl you experience lemon-lime citrus characters and a zesty mineral edge. On the palate, vibrant Meyer lemon, kaffir lime and grassy characters are evident. This wine is mouthwatering and delicious with lovely intensity and a clean, pure finish. Enjoy on a warm summer’s day with a bucket of fresh oysters – pure bliss!
