External Reviews for Hogue Cellars Fume Blanc
The Fume Blanc has aromas of grapefruit and guava, along with sage, peppermint and a hint of smokiness. On the palate are varietal flavors of grapefruit, with a bit of sage, coconut and dried fig. The wine is crisp, smoky and round with moderate weight and richness contributed by the Semillon (25%) added to the blend. The winemakers suggest paring the Fum Blanc with chicken salad or raw oysters.
