Citrus, mango, kiwi, and lime aromas are complemented by flavors of vanilla, guava and grapefruit in Ferrari-Carano's Fumé Blanc. Cool, stainless steel tank fermentation gives this wine a crisp freshness while the subtle oak character from barrel aging adds great complexity and depth.
This Fumé Blanc reveals a marriage of complementary flavors from the Russian River, Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys. The Russian River Valley fruit imparts crisp acidity, while the Alexander Valley grapes are ripe with honeysuckle and melon. Floral and herbal notes from the Dry Creek Valley round out this wine, making it sensational for summer quaffing.
