is a term derived from the French appellation wine Pouilly Fumé, which is made
from the grape variety Sauvignon Blanc.
In the Loire Valley when mature these berries are covered in a smoke-coloured grey bloom, which explains why the Pouilly wine growers talk amongst themselves of Blanc fumé (smoked white) to describe the Sauvignon grape or the wines they produce. Our Fume-Blanc is produced from hand selected parcels of fruit, sourced from the Great Southern sub-regions of Porongurup and Mount Barker.
Our Fume-Blanc has a lifted nose with hints of lemongrass, fig and exotic spices. On the palate, subtle tropical fruits and snow peas overlay a flinty minerality and combine with a zesty acidity that livens the mouth with freshness. 65% French oak maturation adds textural intrigue and layered complexity.
