The Mondavi fumé style was the inspiration of the late Robert Mondavi and remains true to his vision today. It has a definite touch of oak, just enough to provide an inviting backdrop for the complex aromas of the Sauvignon Blanc grape (with a touch of Semillon). This vintage exhibits aromas of citrus and tropical fruits, with a grassy back note and stony mineral quality.

Pithy, with grapefruit and lemon peel flavors, this wine is deceptively crisp and light on the nose, offering a wealth of body and lushness on the palate, accented with nutmeg and peach. It includes 4% Sémillon, partly from the winery's beloved To Kalon vineyard.

Smooth, clean and fresh with citrus and silky texture; balanced, bright and juicy; long and stylish.

Fumé Blanc is a wine I reach for more and more when transitioning from summer to fall and Robert Mondavi produces some of the finest available. In fact it was Robert Mondavi that pioneered this wine style in Napa Valley in the 1960s, when he named his barrel-aged Sauvignon Blanc 'Fumé Blanc'. The 2014 is a blend of 94% Sauvignon Blanc and 6% Sémillon, sourced from the world-famous Napa Valley. Hand harvested, whole cluster pressed, with the majority barrel fermented and then aged for nine months sûr lie to impart a subtle richness and mid-palate mouthfeel that complements and adds further complexity to the inherently fresh and crisp nature of the Sauvignon Blanc. The nose shows lemon-lime, white peach, green melon, gooseberry, sweet herbs, and flinty minerality. The palate offers refreshing citrus and tropical fruits, with lemon grass and crisp minerality on the long finish. Enjoy with Tex-Mex cuisine, creamy lemon-shrimp pasta, or spicy Asian dishes. Tasted September 2017. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
