    Winemaker's Notes:

    Zesty flavors and aromas of orange blossom, grapefruit and lemon mingle with a subtle mineral note that is complemented by a lingering finish of guava and pineapple in the Ferrari-Carano 2008 Fumé Blanc. Aged partially in stainless steel and older French Oak gives this wine a crisp freshness and a subtle oak character that adds great complexity and depth.

    The 2008 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:

    Ferrari-Carano’s 2008 Fume Blanc is an exotic, exuberant, richly fruity white offering notes of honeyed melons, candied orange rind, and sweet grapefruit, medium body, and a hedonistic style. Those looking for terroir and minerality may not enjoy it, but this is a pleasure-filled wine to consume over the next year.
