Matison Wines Fume Sauvignon Blanc
Fume means 'smoky' in French, and usually implies a wine has seen a touch of oak. There are smells of tropical fruits and gooseberries on the nose, whilst the palate is vibrant and compact, with more passionfruit, guava and melon flavours, a rounded mouthfeel, upright acidity, and a decent, lemony finish. It should kick on for a couple of years.
Hand-picked, wild yeast fermentation, French Oak fermentation and maturation. Intense and bright aromatics, flavours and texture. Excellent length and concentration. Delicious young with vibrant acidity with the capacity to mature for at least 5 years.
