Great value from California! Dry Creek Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc, aka Fume Blanc


Dry Creek Vineyard Fume Blanc(Sauvignon Blanc)...$12.99 / 750ml

Inspired by Loire Valley whites like Sancerre and Pouilly Fume. This was Wine Spectator's Value Pick of the Week! In stock at Rock Hill or online for transfer.

Winemaker Notes:
Our 49th vintage of Fumé Blanc is a wine that emanates the classic Dry Creek Vineyard “house” style of Sauvignon Blanc. Aromatics of lime, lemon, apricot and mango leap forward from the glass with nuances of cucumber, lemongrass and white pepper. On the palate, the wine is intense and bright with grapefruit, passionfruit and white peach. Underlying minerality and hints of jasmine, fresh cut grass and jalapeño contribute to this wine’s refreshing, crisp finish.

Wine Spectator: 92 Points
Fresh and effusive, with lemongrass, lemon verbena and fresh ginger notes to complement the core of juicy lemon-lime, green apple and ruby grapefruit flavors. Juicy and mouthwatering on the vibrant finish. Drink now. —M.W.
