Benziger Family Winery Fumé Blanc North Coast 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

schimmerndes Goldgelb, feine Aromatik mit angenehm eingebundener Säure, langanhaltend am Gaumen, Dieser Wein ist eine interessante, österreichische Rarität.

W. H. Smith Wines:
Curious by nature and eager to embrace new adventures, it didn’t take much for friend and winemaker Helen Turley to inspire in Bill the desire to try his hand at Pinot Noir. In 1992, under a new W.

Curious by nature and eager to embrace new adventures, it didn’t take much for friend and winemaker Helen Turley to inspire in Bill the desire to try his hand at Pinot Noir. In 1992, under a new W. H. Smith Wines label, the Smiths released their first vintage of Sonoma County Pinot Noir. Passionate for Pinot, in 1994 Bill and Joan purchased 360 acres along the Sonoma Coast on a ridge high above the town of Cazadero. The first vintage of Maritime Ridge Vineyards—the Smith's rising star—was harvested in 2002 and was released in the spring of 2004. Read less

It had what you expect from a Zinfandel, namely dark fruits and chile's but wasn't spectacular. Price is really what it has going for it

Just a real solid red wine...if there wasn't some many others and so few years left...I would gladly settle on this for "my glass of the day" everyday.

RECOMMENDED - Decanter World Wine Awards The winery and vineyards are located in Terras do Sado, the coastal region of the Setubal peninsula. This area benefits from the mineral-rich sandy soils where both international and native grape varieties can be grown. Santo Isidro de Pegoes is one of the most forward thinking co-operatives and their chief winemaker, Jaime Quendera, is a leading wine entrepreneur in Portugal, offering advice to over 20 other wineries throughout the country. The winery boasts the most up to date equipment; a computerised, temperature controlled modern winery, with 90 stainless steel vats, pneumatic presses, 1,600 oak barrels and modern bottling lines. They produce a wide range of wines that offer excellent value for money. Grapes: 25% Chardonnay, 25% Arinto, 25% Antao Vaz, 25% Verdelho Region: Portugal / Lisboa / Vinho Regional Terras do Sado Maker: Jaime Quendera Notes: A delightfully full-flavoured white wine fom Adega de Pegoes with great weirht and a creamy vanilla smooth oak character Serve : At 14°C with meaty or baked fish ABV : 13% Suitable for Vegetarians
