On the nose, the wine displays fresh, tropical notes of pineapple, kiwi, and peach followed by melon, lime, and fresh apple on the palate. The wine's crisp and balanced acidity makes it the perfect pairing with filet of sole, pork loin, and savory goat cheese.
COMMENTARY: The Grgich Hills Estate Fumé Blanc has been one of the mainstays from the Napa Valley when it comes to top white wines. The 2017 vintage is right on the mark, as expected. Enjoy its aromas and flavors of focused dried herbs and ripe citrus with a shellfish stew. (Tasted: February 13, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
As always an intense, stridently varietal rendition rife with the unmistakable herbaceousness and fresh-grass qualities unique to Sauvignon Blanc but built on a very deep foundation of well-ripened fruit, the Grgich Hills latest Fumé Blanc is a marvelously expressive look at the grape and one that is as bright and lively as it is so very rich. It is a touch taut at the moment and ideally needs a few years of age before relaxing and blooming into its best, and, as previous incarnations have proven year after year, it is a wine with an exceptionally long life ahead.
