Review date: October 13, 2016

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!

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
