The 2013 Fumé Blanc offers a distinct aromatic and flavor profile that sets it apart from the competition. In the glass, Meyer lemon, kefir lime, fresh citrus and grassy characters are immediately evident. The cold stainless steel fermentation preserves the vibrancy in the wine - a characteristic that we love and is often compared to a quivering race horse. The palate repeats vibrant aromatic themes making the wine mouthwatering and delicious. Underlying minerals and wet stone provide a seamless core of acidity and backbone that are hallmarks of our Fumé Blanc. A warm summer day along with a cold bottle of Fumé Blanc and a bucket of fresh oysters can only be described as pure bliss.
Wine EnthusiastNew Dry Creek Vineyard Winemaker Tim Bell is showing finesse with this signature white for the winery. All stainless-steel fermented, it's racy in acidity and offers juicy fruit flavors of apricot, lemon and lime, plus fresh-cut grass and an herbal streak on top of stony minerality. It finishes long. Pair it with oysters and a day on the bay.
