Natalie's Score: 91/100

Crisp, dry and fresh with a lemon-lime lift through the core. Very deft/light use of oak preserves the refreshment of this wine and its versatility with food. This wine is mostly Sauvignon Blanc and with a splash of Semillon. Sixty percent of the wine is barrel fermented, and then it's all aged sur lie in French oak for extra richness, creaminess and lovely dimension.  A very dry white wine that pairs well with seafood.

Fume Blanc food pairings: chicken salad, pork tenderloin, seafood, barbecued lobster.

Reviews and Ratings

Californian Sauvignon Blanc made without a heavy hand. Lovely expression of terroir in this 2012 vintage. Lots of tropical fruit notes and some smokiness. Most of grapes are sourced from vineyards in the Stags Leap and Oakville districts. About two thirds of the wine is fermented in oak barrels. All of the wine is matured in large French oak barrels, sûr lie (on its yeast) for 9 months. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
