Ferrari Carano Sonoma Fume Blanc 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Zesty flavors and aromas of tropical fruit such as kiwi, gooseberry, pineapples and mangos with a hint of grassiness are complemented by creamy citrus notes. Aging partially in stainless steel and older French oak gives this wine a crisp freshness and a subtle oak character that addes great complexity and depth.

Ferrari-Carano vineyard practices are customized to match the particular characteristics of each vineyard to help the vines produce the best fruit possible, and to in turn, achieve the best wine possible. Directed by Don Carano and orchestrated under the supervision of Steve Domenichelli, Director of Vineyard Operations, these practices are extremely labor intensive. Steve and his team implement irrigation and nutrient regimes, trellis system and canopy management, rootstock and clone combinations, and pruning and cane selection for each vineyard site and each block within a vineyard. Because of Sonoma County's diverse geological makeup, even within one vineyard parcel there may be several different types of soil with different degrees of nutrients for vines and water-holding capacity. In addition, Steve and his team practice sustainable farming techniques, such as recycling organic matter for use as mulch in the vineyards, planting cover crops and other plant species to avoid soil erosion, add desirable nutrients back to the soil and to attract desirable insects, and integrating animals to naturally enhance biodiversity and nutrient recycling.

Great buy. Crispy and Zesty. Semi Sweet Grapefruit and a smooth honeydew on the finish. Great on the nose. I'm a traditionalist with my Sauvs and I felt like this was a great display of traditional California Sauv Blanc. The price was a bonus.

Ferrari-Carano’s 2012 Fumé Blanc has aromas of orange blossom, quince, white peach, Meyer lemon and mango complemented by flavors of pineapple, pear and guava. This wine has bright acidity and crisp freshness from the cool, stainless steel tank fermentation, while the subtle oak character from barrel aging adds, body, complexity and depth. ~ The Winery ~

Aromas of lime, kiwi, citrus, melon and a touch of grass complemented by flavors of grapefruit, lemon and lime with a mango and guava finish. Cool, stainless steel tank fermentation gives this wine a crisp freshness while the subtle oak character from barrel aging adds complexity and depth. Made with 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

Ripe pear, yellow apple and citrus zest notes are lively, refreshing and aromatic, with a nice thread of acidity and good intensity on the finish. Drink now.

The delicious 2012 Fume Blanc exhibits lots of melon, pineapple and fig notes in an exuberant, fresh, lively, medium-bodied style revealing no notion of oak in either the aromas or flavors. Drink this delicious, consumer-friendly, textbook Fume Blanc over the next year.

Special Case Price! This wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc grapes from various appellations in Sonoma County: Dry Creek, Alexander, Knights and Russian River Valleys. Overall, 2012 was a very good year with ideal weather conditions for the vines.
