In 1966, Robert Mondavi created the first Fumé Blanc. This bottling remains true to that original style — a luscious barrel-aged wine that captures the crisp, vibrant character of the Sauvignon Blanc grape.
The wine opens with floral aromas of orange blossom and jasmine merging with fresh citrus and a touch of mineral and toasted almond. Richly layered flavors of citrus and lychee fruit unfold on the palate. Thanks to barrel-fermentation and gentle stirring during sur lie aging in French oak, the wine is round and expressive, with a long, elegant finish.
