Vintages Wine Panel: The winery gets the fruit for this wine from two of their stellar vineyards: Wapoo Hill and To Kalon. They add 10% Semillon to round out the wine. Sixty percent of the wine is barrel fermented. All wines are then aged, sur lie, in French oak. My note: Juicy and refreshing with vibrant, clean lemon and lime fruit. Very zippy: perfect for so many dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

This 2009 Fumé Blanc exhibits a nice creaminess balanced with good acidity, delivering floral aromas and flavors of tropical fruits including passion fruit, guava and grapefruit. These flavors continue on to the nice finish ... Source: Steve Ferree, examiner.com

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
