REGION: The grapes for this wine come from vineyards located in Kerem Ben Zimra and Safsufa in the Upper Galilee of Israel and Elkosh in the Western Galilee. WINEMAKING: Fumé Blanc is a blend of 88% Sauvignon Blanc and 22% Semillon. Several methods were involved in making this wine. Natural fermentation in large 500 liter barrels, inoculated fermentation in stainless steel tanks and some underwent secondary malolactic fermentation. Once all the parts had finished their respective ferments they were blended and allowed to age for about 4 months in barrel. TASTING NOTES: This is classic fumé style wine most suited to the Mediterranean climate. The wine is light with soft acidity combining the fruity aromas of citrus and guava together with a subtle toasty oak character.
