2015 Reserve Fumé Sauvignon Blanc
%price_bottle% / Bottle
The Reserve Fumé Sauvignon Blanc is a style of Sauvignon Blanc that we have had a long history of producing here at Murphy-Goode. It all started almost 30 years ago when co-founder Dave Ready, Sr. asked what new French Oak barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc would taste like. Reluctantly we explored the idea and after much trial and tribulation found that if we paired the right grapes into the right mix of new and used barrels we could produce a really complex and exciting wine. After a brief hiatus, we are excited to share with you the return of our all new Reserve Fumé, which might be our most aromatic Reserve Fumé to date. The aromatic notes of orange blossom and tangerine from the Sauvignon Musque clone are in your face and get you excited for what’s to come. The body is rich and creamy from the barrel fermentation, but crisp on the edges due to the great fruit with notes of citrus and white peach. The finish is long and enjoyable with a touch of vanilla and sweet tropical fruits.
This is a great oyster wine as most Sauvignon Blancs are, but you can also pair this was some delicious crab cakes.
