Fume Blanc is not that known wine here in Europe, but it is essential for California wine history. It is mostly connected to Robert Mondavi, who made his Sauvignon Blanc in oak in the past. Wine can get nice texture and complexicity because of ageing in oak and it built renome for its own style. Still remains fresh as normal Sauvignon Blanc, but with small hints of cream and toast.
On the nose, the wine displays fresh, tropical notes of pineapple, kiwi, and peach followed by melon, lime and fresh apple on the palate. The wine’s crisp and balanced acidity makes it the perfect pairing with filet of sole, pork loin and savory goat cheese.
