Grassy and vibrant with aromas of lime, chives and lemongrass. Ultra-refreshing. This organic wine is made from 100% estate-grown grapes that are grown certified biodynamic. The vineyards are located in American Canyon and Carneros. Pair with halibut in a lemon sauce.
Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: chicken salad, pork tenderloin, seafood, barbecued lobster.

|Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Crafted in a consistently sunny 2013 vintage, this 100% Sauvignon Blanc was organically farmed and fermented in small French oak barrels followed by six months lees-aging to add body and complexity while preserving its vibrant fruit. Beautifully refreshing with abundant aromas and flavours of ripe tropical fruit and a touch of minerality. Perfect patio-sipper and a great match to grilled shrimps, light salads and soft, creamy cheeses. Tasted April 2016/91 points. Tania Thomas – www.runawaygrape.com
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A very refreshing wine that I would enjoy on it's own as the weather heats up and we get our patio season in full swing. Medium lemon colour with intense aromas of citrus,apple, fresh grass, fresh herbs, cedar and smoke. The palate is light with medium+ refreshing acidity. A good fresh cut apple finish. 100% organic and Biodynamic Certified. Serve well chilled. Excellent salad wine.
Tasted: April 2015
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A light gooseberry nose and a crisp, delicious palate showing tropical passionfruit, gooseberry and lemon with a slight herbal touch. Dry with a crisp finish.
|Fume Blanc is the Californian term for Sauvignon Blanc and sometimes does receive oak aging. - Community Wine Reviews|
