This wine has delicious aromas and flavors of pineapple, pink grapefruit, lemongrass, lychee, peach, pear, honeydew melon, orange blossom, guava and a touch of minerality. The Fumé Blanc has bright acidity and crisp freshness from the cool, stainless steel tank fermentation, while the subtle oak character from neutral French oak barrels adds body, complexity and depth. Fumé Blanc pairs well with simple seafood and poultry dishes, and also holds up nicely with veal and pork. This wine has lively flavors that go well with spicy and ethnic cuisines such as Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Korean, Mexican and Southwestern dishes.

Wine AdvocateThe 2018 Fume Blanc gives soft scents of baker's yeast, Bosc pear, kiwi, cut grass and kaffir lime leaves with stony hints. The palate is light-bodied, rounded and zesty with uncomplicated flavors. 86,000 cases were made.
