The Oddbins Take

Fume Blanc is a style of wine that we frankly don’t see enough. Perhaps because wine drinkers don’t understand what it is, perhaps because they are unsure how a barrel fermented Sauvignon works or maybe, people are disconcerted that Fume Blanc sounds like 'white smoke' and are concerned that by drinking it, the bottle will indicate to the Catholic church that they have been elected as the new Pope… "The wine is great, I’m just not sure I can pull off the big white hat." That may be the most ecclesiastical joke we've ever made. Opening this delicious bottle of Fox Gordon Fume Blanc will not actually reveal the next Pope, it will however, present an intense bouquet of fresh peach and stone fruits, a palate of almonds, nougat and red apples, with creamy complexity and a long steely finish. Drinking Fume Blanc is not part of the papal conclave ritual but after that first sip, the cardinals may think it should be!

    In the 1980s, Emperor Ming the Merciless, bored with alliteration, racial insensitivity and shaping his eyebrows into aggressive points, turned to the light entertainment of full-scale destruction of the human race. There was only one thing that could save us, an Australian wine company focused upon incredible intensity of fruit from low input and low yielding vines; Fox Gordon. Wait what, that was Flash Gordon? Well this is embarrassing… Regardless, had Ming been presented with this enticing trio of South Australian wines he would have undoubtedly turned into Ming the Mollified… Fox ahhhah, saviour of the universe!
