Fumé Blanc is just another name for Sauvignon Blanc, and this is a delicious one. Dry and racy in acidity, it has deep citrus, tropical fruit and gooseberry flavors. At this price, it's one of the best Sauvignon Blancs on the market. Relatively easy to find, with more than 30,000 cases produced. - S.H. (mostly from Wappo Vineyard in Stags Leap District; two-thirds barrel-fermented): Straw yellow. Pungent aromas of pineapple, grapefruit and lime zest. Intense and savory, with excellent thrust to the citrus zest and floral flavors. Mondavi picks this fruit early (80% of it is from owned vineyards), using dry ice and SO2 to protect it from air at the pressing. Youthfully tight and very fresh. Yes, the sauvignon blancs were presented after the reserve chardonnay at my March tasting at Mondavi.

This is rounded by oak aging, which brings up scents of fennel and beeswax, giving the finish an earthy impression. The fruit is brisk with lemon pith flavors and pinpoint acidity. A dark, savory white for braised pork with fennel.

Winemaker's Notes:

Fresh aromas of lime, guava and lemon verbena anticipate crisp, mouthwatering flavors of ripe honeydew, lemongrass and honeysuckle with subtle spice notes. The ample mouthfeel and creamy texture is enlivened by zesty acidity and lingering citrus flavors.
