Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2014 Vintage) Our Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc is yet another interpretation of this expressive variety. In crafting this wine, the second generation looked to several distinct vineyard sites in the Dry Creek Valley. The goal was to focus on the regional terroir and produce a wine that was not only true to the family’s Fumé roots but also a statement of quality and commitment going forward. Blending in small amounts of Sauvignon Gris and Sauvignon Musqué gives the wine added depth and richness. Full bodied and expressive, this delicious Sauvignon Blanc veers more toward the tropical fruit side of the flavor spectrum making it an excellent accompaniment to the racy and lean style of the Fumé Blanc.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2013 Vintage) This delicious wine incorporates small amounts of Sauvignon Musqué and Sauvignon Gris which adds a layer of depth and a fleshy, full-bodied mouthfeel. At first swirl, this wine presents aromas of honeydew melon, ripe pear and some floral notes. On the palate, flavors of Meyer lemons, tangerines and mineral notes come through with a slightly creamy, but lively finish. Stainless steel fermentation was supplemented with small amounts of chestnut, acacia and French oak barrels adding additional character and nuance to this delicious wine. Seamless from start to finish, this is an elegant and refined Sauvignon Blanc.
