Inspired by the traditional barrel-fermented white wine from the Bordeaux region, our Fumé Blanc is an old world styled white with a new world taste. The bold aromatic Sauvignon Blanc is tamed by the softer, delicately fruity Sémillon. Clos du Soleil's Fumé Blanc is a full-flavoured, aromatic take on Sauvignon Blanc designed for everyday enjoyment.
The nose of this wine immediately envelops the taster in ripe fruit aromas of grapefruit, apple, pear, and ripe lemons, with notes of gunflint and the beautiful floral notes of lilac in full bloom
On the palate the wine is full bodied with a rich mouthfeel, incorporating flavours of ripe apples and pears, complex layers of citrus including characteristic varietal flavours of grapefruit, as well as a subtle hint of oak.
A beautiful pale-gold in the glass.
Crisp and refreshing, this is a wine that is easy to enjoy by itself, but pairs wonderfully with roast poultry, soft cheeses, and is a knock-out with all kinds of seafood!
