Dry Creek Vineyard Fume Blanc 2021
Since 1972, Dry Creek Vineyard has produced Fumé Blanc — a wine at the heart and soul of their family winery. Modeled after the classic wines from the Loire Valley in France, this stainless steel fermented Fumé Blanc is crisp, balanced and immediately drinkable. The 50th Anniversary Edition of Fumé Blanc emanates the classic Dry Creek Vineyard “house” style of Sauvignon Blanc. Aromatics of lime, lemon, white peach and grapefruit leap forward from the glass with nuances of honeydew, lemongrass and white tea. On the palate, the wine is intense and bright with tangerine, passionfruit and cucumber. Underlying minerality and hints of hibiscus, lemon verbena and jalapeño contribute to this wine’s refreshing, crisp finish.
