Vintage 2015
Wine Type White
Varietal Fume Blanc
Region Alexander Valley
Winemaker Margo Van Staaveren
This classic Fumé Blanc has inviting aromas of green tea, lemongrass, and subtle, yet intriguing, ginger and tamarind spice notes. The nose leads to an expressive palate with sweet fruit flavors of apple, kiwi and pear. The wine has a rich, full mouthfeel and is well-balanced with refreshing acidity and a long finish.

Vineyard Note

This rare single-vineyard Fumé Blanc boasts fragrant aromas of ripe stone fruit, fig, lemon zest and green tea. The wine is fine, almost delicate, and elegant with a flavorful palate of ripe white peach and kiwi fruit. The wine is balanced by a racy core of acidity adding notes of minerality and a crisp, clean finish.

Winemaker's Note

The majority of the wine (73%) was tankfermented to retain the fresh, forward fruit flavors that are indicative of this vineyard. The balance of the blend (27%) was barrel fermented in French oak. The barrel portion was aged sur lie for nine months to add texture and creaminess. A very small amount of Semillon (5%) from the Lyon Vineyard, fermented in stainless steel, completes the final blend.
