We have released
an exciting new Sauvignon Blanc from
the Dry Creek Valley
appellation. For those people
familiar with our wines, since 1972
we have made Sauvignon Blanc,
choosing instead to call the wine
Fumé Blanc. Our Fumé, modeled after
the dry white wines of the Loire
Valley region in France, put our
family winery on the world wine
map. To the credit of founder David
Stare, we were also the first winery
to plant Sauvignon Blanc in the Dry
Creek Valley all of those years ago.
This new wine is the last great step
taken by the second generation
affirming our passion to produce Dry
Creek Valley appellation wines.
Food friendly and immediately
approachable this delicious
summertime quaffer appeals to both
new wine drinkers as well as the
traditional Fumé Blanc customer.
2008 Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon
Blanc is refreshing, crisp, and
expressive of the unique terroir of
each of the individual vineyards
that comprise this wine. We
blended in 6% Sauvignon Musqué (a
unique clone of Sauvignon Blanc) to
give the wine additional depth and
complexity without using oak or
other winemaking techniques.
Effusive aromas of guava, white
peach, and melon abound. On the
palate, intensely flavored stone
fruit characters repeat the tropical
fruit theme of this delicious wine.
