This Fumè Blanc from the Grgich Hills Estate is perhaps difficult to pronounce but easy to appreciate. To begin with, all of the vineyards on the estate are farmed naturally, without artificial pesticides or herbicides. All Grgich Hills Estate wines are certified organic.
The 2015 Fumè Blanc is a dry sauvignon blanc which, after fermenting with natural yeasts in large 900-gallon! French oak barrels spend another six months on the lees. This process gives sauvignon blanc distinct aromas and flavours of tropical fruit and lemongrass, with a slight touch of minerals and a pleasantly long finish. What we call a very balanced wine that is perfect to join a wide range of food such as grilled fish, goat cheese, salads and spicy Mexican or Asian dishes.
