Grgich Hills Estate Fume Blanc
Description: Winemaker's Notes
This 100% Sauvignon Blanc was made from grapes grown naturally, without artificial pesticides or herbicides, at our cool American Canyon and Carneros vineyards. The combination of the right clones and cool growing region produced juicy tropical fruit and lemongrass flavors with a touch of minerality at the end of a long finish that are perfect with a wide range of food, including grilled fish, goat cheese salad and spicy Mexican or Asian cuisine.

Critical Acclaim
W&S 92pts
Wine & Spirits - Ivo Jeramaz, Mike Grgich’s nephew, grows this wine at estate vineyards in American Canyon and Carneros, where most of his sauvignon vines are the musqué clone. He ferments it in foudres, with a small portion in older French oak barrels. That oak is evident in a vanillin scent when the wine is first poured, but the fruit has retained its brightness and clarity, so the oak aging adds depth and plushness while the wine feels tight and concentrated, focused on passion fruit and juicy orange notes.
