2022 Ferrari-Carano Fume Blanc, Sonoma County, USA (750ml)
This wine opens with enticing aromas of pineapple, mango, peach, lemon grass, and lychee. The palate offers ripe fruit and crisp citrus flavors of yellow peach, apricot, pear, lime zest, and lemon cream. The Fumé Blanc has bright acidity and crisp freshness from the cool, stainless steel tank fermentation, while the subtle oak character from neutral French oak barrels adds body, complexity, and depth. Fumé Blanc pairs well with simple seafood and poultry dishes, and also holds up nicely with veal and pork. This wine has lively flavors that go well with spicy and ethnic cuisines such as Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Korean, Mexican, and Southwestern dishes.
This is aromatic with crunchy gooseberries, lemon peel, garden herbs and white flowers. Medium-bodied with a zesty, slightly phenolic character and crisp, lemony acidity. Flavorful finish.
