The Oddbins Take

Sauvignon Blanc is rather cool, a late-60s David Bowie of a grape; striking, powerful, fragrant, a little fruity and immediately recognisable. Yet, it’s getting to a point now that people think they’ve got the making of Sauvignon Blanc, just as they thought they understood Bowie…

Well, perhaps it’s time for a persona change… *Out strides Fume Blanc dressed as Ziggy Stardust!*

Fume Blanc is a different beast; bolder, more complex and nuanced than humble Sauvignon Blanc. Despite being made from the same grape, Fume Blanc is an American term for when Sauvignon has been given extended lees (dead yeast) contact, oak fermentation and maturation. Wines such as Grgich Hills have a pronounced juicy tropical fruit, blackcurrant, lemongrass flavours and a mineral touch which are balanced by a spicy vanilla backbone, that is sure to get you singing, “Ziggy played guitar!”
