Winemaker David Ready Jr. Notes
Since 1985 we have been producing Sauvignon Blanc and with the 2007 vintage we decided to try something different – we set out to make the ultimate Sauvignon Blanc and decided to aptly name it “The Fumé,” as in the one and only! The plan was to incorporate our old winemaking practices with a new twist. A portion of the blend is still barrel aged but the majority of it is fermented in stainless steel tanks which highlight its bright fruit flavors. While we kept a small portion of Alexander Valley fruit, we expanded our sourcing to other regions including Lake and Mendocino Counties. The Lake County fruit adds lemon grass and fig flavors while the Mendocino fruit contributes a hint of gooseberry and minerality for a great taste ...more... we like to call “lip puckering goodness
