Sauvignon Blanc

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

Sauvignon Blanc is widely grown in California -- at over 15,000 acres, it’s now the third most planted variety -- and often assumes the moniker ‘Fume Blanc’. This popular synonym, credited to Napa’s Robert Mondavi, derives from the grape’s historic home of Pouilly in France’s Upper Loire Valley, where Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant varietal and goes locally by the name of ‘Blanc Fumé’. This noble grape is also successfully grown in Washington State and in New York on Long Island. In Canada, the variety is establishing a foothold in both the Niagara region of Ontario and British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley.

When treated with respect and afforded suitable growing conditions, it is one of the wine world’s darlings. Dry wines made from this grape are characterized by steely, racy acidity, green, gooseberry fruit, asparagus and a grassy, herbaceous character. It is rarely oaked, except in California, where it has often been subjected to Read more »

  • Murphy-Goode the Fumé Sauvignon Blanc North Coast 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A prime example of the fumé style; lots of bright yellow fruits with just a dash of oak. Lemon, honeysuckle and white tea hit the nose with a dash of Zweiback. Light, crisp, and fresh with some roundness around the edges. Tempered acidity. Unripe pineapple, green apple, and more lemon follow. Long zing-zanging citrus-drenched finish. Read More

    Lightly herbed citrus notes of lemon and lime with a rose petal note on the nose. Tart and fresh in the mouth with pink grapefruit and cantaloupe notes and a touch of grassy herb and pineapple on the finish. Nicely complex yet well integrated. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Binny's 3/2016. New Zealand does not export an average bottle of wine at any price point. Always better than you paid for, if California wine is your basis point. Well, maybe not the high end, as $20/$30 per 750 ml bottle is my price limit. Read More
