Creamy citrus notes complement zesty flavors an aromas of tropical fruit such as kiwi, gooseberry, pineapples and mangos with a hint of grassiness. The Sonoma County Ferrari-Carano Fume Blanc is a blend of vineyard lots from various appellations of Sonoma County. Aged partially in stainless steel and older French oak gives this wine a crisp freshness and a subtle oak character that adds great complexity and depth.

Ferrari Carano Fume Blanc Sonoma Earthy, tropical varietal aromas, rich, fleshy, supple fruit flavors, lingering aftertaste. We have been going strong with this Sauvignon Blanc for well over a decade. Our customers love it!

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2006 Ferrari-Carano Fumé Blanc offers a fresh and vibrant fruit entry with a rich mouth feel. Zesty flavors and aromas of tropical fruit, apricot and lemon with a light floral characteristic and a hint of grass are complemented by creamy vanilla notes. Aging partially in stainless steel and older French oak gives this wine a light-bodied feel complemented by subtle oak character. Vintage Notes The fruit for this wine comes from our vineyards in different growing regions: Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and Russian River Valley, an area known for producing some of the world's best white wines. A cooler, wetter season without the traditional heat spikes provided some beautiful fruit and produced one of the biggest grape crops in the county's history. Winemakers Notes When the Sauvignon Blanc grapes arrived at the winery, each lot was gently crushed, de-stemmed and pressed, and then moved directly to stainless steel tanks or older French oak barrels for fermentation. Aged separately by lots, the wines in barrels were sur lie aged and stirred every two weeks for four months, while the wines in stainless steel aged undisturbed. The winemaking team was able to select from the various individual lots to create the final Fume Blanc blend. The resulting wine retains crisp freshness from aging in stainless steel, while the oak adds great complexity and depth. Appellation: Sonoma County Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc Cooperage: 45% Stainless Steel; 55% older French oak Release Day: March 1, 2007 Rhonda's Recipe and Pairing Notes Spicy Lime-Ginger Grilled Shrimp The 2006 Fumé Blanc pairs well with simple seafood and light pasta dishes, and also holds up nicely with white meats such as veal and pork. The Fumé Blanc has lively flavors that go well with spicy and ethnic cuisines such as Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Korean, Mexican and Southwestern dishes.
