Relying on naturally-occurring yeasts, we fermented 80% of the grapes in 900-gallon French oak casks, called foudres, with the remainder in previously- used small French oak barrels. We then aged the wine six months on its lees (the spent yeast) in neutral barrels. The combination of the right clones and cool growing region produced juicy tropical fruit and lemongrass flavors with a touch of minerality at the end of a long finish that are perfect with a wide range of food, including grilled seafood, chicken, oysters, creamy pastas dishes and summer salads.

The 2019 Fume Blanc Estate delivers fabulously flamboyant scents of pink grapefruit, passion fruit and lime cordial with wafts of lemon blossoms, mandarin peel and struck flint. The medium-bodied palate is packed with pure, zesty, expressive tropical and citrus layers plus tons of minerally accents and herbal sparks lifting the finish. It's irresistibly delicious now, but I'd love to see it with 2-3 years of bottle age too.

As always an intense, stridently varietal rendition rife with the unmistakable herbaceousness and fresh-grass qualities unique to Sauvignon Blanc but built on a very deep foundation of well-ripened fruit, the Grgich Hills latest Fumé Blanc is a marvelously expressive look at the grape and one that is as bright and lively as it is so very rich. It is a touch taut at the moment and ideally needs a few years of age before relaxing and blooming into its best, and, as previous incarnations have proven year after year, it is a wine with an exceptionally long life ahead.

Sliced dried-lemon and green-apple aromas and flavors. Cooked apples, too. Full-bodied, flavorful and delicious. Opulent white. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink now.

Lots of grassy, citrus, minty notes emerge from the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Fumé Blanc, and it's nicely textured, medium-bodied, and elegant on the palate, with good richness as well as freshness. It's a greener, herbal style of Sauvignon Blanc, but it handles the style well.
