2022 Fumé Blanc $45/750ml

Tasting notes:
Fumé Blanc was made famous by Robert Mondavi in 1966 to showcase Sauvignon Blanc in a different style than what American wine drinkers at the time were used to expecting from the varietal. Fumé Blanc captures the essence of the French Sauvignon Blanc style with the use of French Oak barrels for aging, fermentation, or both. We decided to continue that tradition to show the versatility of Sauvignon Blanc. This wine has an elegant nose with vanilla bean, pineapple, and lemon zest. Aging in new French Oak adds depth to the palate weight and complexity to the flavor. Creamy lemon curd, vanilla, peach, mango, and sherbet show up strong while the weighty texture of the wine envelopes the taste buds. Our Fumé Blanc makes for a unique drinking experience that channels American wine history and brings something new to our lineup of wines. Serve slightly chilled, not ice cold.
