Clos du Soleil Fumé Blanc

Clos du Soleil Fumé Blanc 2019

British Columbia, CanadaThis year's Fumé Blanc blends 77/23 sauvignon blanc and sémillon, from Keremeos and Oliver. After destemming and light crushing, this was left on skins for 3 hours before being pressed into stainless and French puncheons, the two grapes undergoing their own vinification. After 4 months on lees, they were blended. Juicy and potent with gooseberry, white grapefruit, white peach, guava, and lightly flinty toastiness on the finish. Quite a punchy wine, and able to stand up to equally punchy dishes.Tasted: 09 May 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 18.90 winery online Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
