    Winemaker's Notes:

    Grgich Hills Fumé Blanc is estate grown, meaning they control everything from the ground to the bottle. They feel this is essential to achieve the kind of quality, balance and consistency that is Grgich Hills' hallmark. The 2005 Fumé Blanc displays classic varietal flavors of grapefruit, lemongrass and a touch of minerality, a full mouth feel and long finish. This versatile, flavorful white wine is a great companion to a wide variety of food flavors and textures.

    "Here is a big, potent Fume that is rife with both very deep fruit and loads of varietal herbs, and its generous mix of melons and grass is framed with very evident oak. Full and close to oily in feel, it has the weight and richness of Chardonnay but is solidly and unmistakably Sauvignon Blanc from beginning to end. There will no doubt be those who think it too much of a good thing, but it will never be accused of timidity, and it will stand up to appropriately full-flavored foods. And, for those with a yearning for older Sauvignon Blancs, the Grgich bottlings have frequently exhibited incredible staying power."

    I didn't know what to expect with an "organic" wine, but it was delish! A sweet, fruity taste, with a light oak aftertaste, fairly subtle.
