CREW - Colchester Ridge Estate Winery
Our 2021 Fumé Blanc takes our crisp, citrusy Sauvignon Blanc and places it into French Oak barrels for fermentation and further aging. The wine rests in the barrels, aging for 8 months while undergoing battonage (lees stirring) regularly and careful monitoring to ensure the final wine embraces the flavours and vision of the winemaker. The end result is an enticing, complex white wine, blonde in colour, with citrusy notes bursting of apricot and grapefruit, along with wildflower and vanilla. With its slight smoky mouthfeel, dry finish and refreshing acidity our 2021 Fumé Blanc provides intrigue with every sip.
Pair with prosciutto, caprese salad or mushroom risotto.
