VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

This wine is a sophisticated expression of sauvignon blanc made in the traditional Bordeaux style of the Pessac-Léognan / Graves sub-regions. The fruit is from the Stoney Crossing vineyard in Pemberton, planted in 1998. It has a north facing aspect and karri loam soils. The fruit was picked in April 2015, it was crushed, settled and underwent a wild fermentation in tank to 8 Be to ensure the fruit purity was maintained. At that point approximately 50% was transferred to oak (20% new Bordeaux barriques, 30% second use) with the remaining 50% completing fermentation in a stainless steel tank for five months on lees. This is done to balance fruit purity with the trademark spice, texture and softness of a barrel fermented sauvignon blanc.

Fumé Blanc was a name first used in the late nineteen sixties in Napa Valley, California, by vintner Robert Mondavi to denote a style of sauvignon blanc which had received oak treatment. The name is now widely used for oaked sauvignon blanc dominant wines.

THE WINE

The wine has complex aromas that hint at spice, straw, snow pea and subtle grassiness. The mouth feel is elegant and textural due to the partial oak treatment which softens the palate and adds a refined complexity. This wine shows its best with food and is well suited to complement oven-roasted chicken and vegetable style dishes.

Hits your mouth like a goose feather duvet. Totally unwilling to get out of this blow-your-mind wine. Mum said it's nice too :)

From the first sip you are transported back to the grounds of Singlefile, watching the geese and smelling the grass in the air. A delightful wine for summer that is very enjoyable.

An outstanding white wine. I don't generally drink white wines, but used to enjoy a Fume Blanc. I'm almost ashamed to say, but this was just so nice, I drank the bottle on my own. It was nothing less than delightful. Crisp, full of fruit flavours, smooth, and just the right amount of oak. Over the years I've been disappointed by Fume Blanc, always looking for that wine I remember from years past. This is indeed that wine! Another spectacular Singlefile wine to match the standard of your Shiraz and champagne. I'm buying a dozen or 2 shortly. 😀
