The 2019 Ferrari-Carano Fumé Blanc is an excellent wine. This wine delivers. Enjoy its attractive aromas of ripe fruit, earth, and spice with a lemon-thyme roast chicken. (Tasted: January 8, 2020, Cloverdale, CA)
This wine has delicious aromas and flavors of grapefruit, lemon grass, lychee, pear, citrus, orange blossom, peach and a touch of minerality. The Fumé Blanc has bright acidity and crisp freshness from the cool, stainless steel tank fermentation, while the subtle oak character from neutral French oak barrels adds body, complexity and depth.
Fumé Blanc pairs well with simple seafood and poultry dishes, and also holds up nicely with veal and pork. This wine has lively flavors that go well with spicy and ethnic cuisines such as Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Korean, Mexican and Southwestern dishes.
