    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ferrari-Carano's 2012 Fume Blanc has aromas of orange blossom, quince, white peach, Meyer lemon and mango complemented by flavors of pineapple, pear and guava. This wine has bright acidity and crisp freshness from the cool, stainless steel tank fermentation, while the subtle oak character from barrel aging adds, body, complexity and depth.

    This Fume Blanc pairs well with simple seafood and poultry dishes, and also holds up nicely with white meats such as veal and pork. The wine has lively flavors that go well with spicy and ethnic cuisines such as Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Korean, Mexican and Southwestern dishes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Young, fresh, fruity, subtle in its nuanced notes of sweet grasses, candied grapefruit and Meyer lemons, this vibrant new wine is equally full of vim & vigor on the palate... it will get better and better.

    Smokey, dry, limey. I love this wine and I am not a white wine fan. This is a very reliable, drinkable wine.

    Smell. Sniff. You know you’re about to taste quality. Whether you like it or not— Fumé Blanc is not for everyone—you will be sniffing & tasting quality. The bouquet is so bright. The bouquet itself is crisp…. When it hits your tongue you almost feel effervescence! That’s how strong it is… the flavors are strong and decisive, dry & bold. It is a very (very) good wine. Not for those who want a mild wine, or a sweet wine at all. But one to serve to guests if they like dry and you want to spend more than $10 and just less than $20. The wine is smooth and above it all I keep coming back to the word quality. Now I’m a lover of sauvignon (and Fumé) Blancs so I’m a tinge biased; but no matter what this is an adult, grown up wine. The twist cap is a lovely convenience and the wine is truly quality in every sip….

    Nice everyday white. Unexpectedly more complex than other wines in this price range.
