    Winemaker's Notes:

    This crisp and refreshing Fumé Blanc offers inviting aromas of sweet citrus, pear and a hint of floral spice. The wine is well-structured with luscious melon and tangerine flavors that combine with lively acidity. The finish is long and clean with a lemon zest note.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Intense smoke and honeysuckle aromatics mingle well together, leading to crisp and refreshing lemon, tangerine and yellow apple flavors on a medium body, with good acidity. The smoke flavors persist on the finish. Drink now.

    This was a nice light bodied white, fairly dry with the mentioned flavors of pear and a bit of grapefruit. There is some vanilla in the nose and flavor, but where the oak really shines is in the finish. Theres strong oak that hints at smoke. I liked this well enough, but the finish makes it shine quite well. With food the mixture of fruit and oak make for some really interesting effects that tend to work very well. I'd rate this around an 88.
