(aka. Blanc Fume, Fume Blanc, Savagnin Musque)

Once in the cellar gentle pressing is followed by fermentation and aging in a high proportion of new oak.

    Snoothrank:

    Nose is almost acridseems really acidic. Some tart grapefruit on entry, then, some tropical fruitbananaor melon. Some grassiness. Yes, there is quite tart acid.

  • I’m always being asked to recommend an unusual wine, “one that isn’t Cabernet Sauvignon or Chardonnay”. With media communications improving by the minute it’s getting more and more difficult but at a recent corporate event I saw a few puzzled expressions when I suggested Blaufränkisch. It’s one of my favourite Austrian reds and certainly falls i... Read More

  • Oxford Landing SB (Marlborough NZ) was my introduction to this grape. Oxford Landing is a reasonable price for a surprisingly low % and an acceptable intro to this grape. However....
