The 2017 Lakeview Cellars Fumé Blanc is made from the winery’s best Sauvignon Blanc vines grown in the Niagara Peninsula. Fumé Blanc is another name for Sauvignon Blanc. Fumé means “smoke” and refers to the fog that often engulfs the Loire Valley in France. This wine offers aromas of citrus zest, with a smoky top note from light oak aging. Pair it with smoked salmon and field greens.

Fumé Blanc food pairings: grilled seafood, clam vongole, crab cakes with aioli.

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of pineapple, pear and lemongrass on the nose, with a slight honeyed note. Medium-bodied and smooth on the palate, with medium+ acidity, lots of vibrant tropical and citrus fruit notes and a silky, creamy finish. Enjoy with cod, halibut or other white fish.
David Skinner rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Light straw color. The nose is predominantly citrus, pear and melon with a subtle smokey accent. Medium bodied with some tropical fruit and citrus on the palate. Mild oak character with medium acidity and a medium finish. Enjoy with chicken quesadillas or fish tacos.
Lakeview Cellars 2017 Fumé Blanc is a smoky, mouth-watering Sauvignon Blanc from the Niagara Peninsula wine region. This one being a small-batch Fumé Blanc with bright apple, fresh cut grass, pink grapefruit, tropical fruit, vanilla and flinty mineral flavours vibrant on the palate. Perfect for smoked salmon and grilled shrimp dishes. - Community Wine Reviews
