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 including grapefruit, lime, and pineapple, with a hint of gooseberry.
On the palate the flavours become more tropical, with passionfruit, pineapple, grapefruit, a hint of lemongrass, and very subtle oak. Crisp and refreshing, this wine has a long finish and leaves the drinker wanting more.
A beautiful pale-gold with the subtlest green tint in the glass.
Enjoy this wine on its own, with a light appetizer or salad and, of course, with your favourite shellfish.
