The Fumé

Sauvignon Blanc

North Coast 2012 The perfect plus-one

Description

Bright citrus and lush tropical fruit aromas. Flavors of white peach and honeydew. What’s not to love about this versatile Sauvignon Blanc, with its hint of Sémillon for floral notes and its touch of oak for that smoky, intriguing “fume” personality. From poolside aperitifs to your best friend’s wedding, from barbecued oysters on the beach to the BYOB Thai place around the corner, this go-to wine from California’s North Coast rises to every single occasion. Don’t leave home—or stay home—without it.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2012 Fumé was predominately fermented in stainless steel to retain the expression of bright citrus and tropical fruit aromatics while the balance was barrel fermented in French and American oak to increase the mouthfeel and develop lush flavors of white peach and honeydew melon. The Sémillon adds wonderful expressions of floral notes and adds nice texture.
