Clos du Soleil's Fumé Blanc is a full-flavoured, aromatic take on Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.
A beautiful pale-gold in the glass.
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.
- Winemaking Notes
The grapes for this wine were harvested by hand at peak maturity, and then pressed whole cluster. The juice was settled before fermentation and then fermented slowly at cool temperatures, in a combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak puncheons. The Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon were vinified separately, and all of the wine lots were left to age on the lees, in both tank and barrel, for 4 months prior to final blending.
- Food Pairing
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!
