Clos du Soleil Fumé Blanc 2020

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's Fumé Blanc blends 74/26 sauvignon blanc and sémillon, all from the Dhaliwal Bros Vineyard in Oliver. After destemming and light crushing, each was left on skins for 3 hours before being pressed into stainless and French puncheons for solo ferments and 4 months on lees prior to blending. Punchy and direct with passionfruit, pink grapefruit, crunchy pear on a forward, potent palate. The wood certainly takes a backseat to the fruit here, with perhaps some cedar-tinged spicing the only fumé-indication. Enjoy now with equally-forward and potently flavoured dishes.Tasted: 26 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 20.90 winery online Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
