Lemon sunshine with a deft touch of oak that offers just a whisper of smoke. Medium-bodied and subtle. Lovely green apple on the clean finish.

|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
From the heart of Sonoma, this clear, pale yellow Fume Blanc is refreshing and elegant. With aromas of jasmine and pear, followed by flavours of pear,apple, lemon zest and honeydew melon, this medium-bodied gem will make friends and influence people. Try with smoked oysters.
|Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Pale, lemon-green in colour with flavours of grapefruit, lime, pineapple, smoke, and mint. The Medium plus creamy body is balanced by the zesty acidity which carries the flavours through on the warming finish.
Drink now, or keep until 2015.
Enjoy on its own, or pair with goat cheese, or cream soups.
Date tasted: April 2014.
