Fumé Blanc is a refreshing Sauvignon Blanc.

Aromas & Flavors: This 100% Sauvignon Blanc wine from our vineyards primarily in Sonoma County opens with enticing aromas of pineapple, mango, peach, lemon grass, and lychee. The palate offers ripe fruit and crisp citrus flavors of yellow peach, apricot, pear, lime zest, and lemon cream.

Fun Fact: Our Fumé Blanc is partially aged in stainless steel and neutral French oak barrels. This wine has bright acidity and crisp freshness from the cool, stainless steel tank fermentation (70%), while the subtle oak character from the neutral French oak barrels (30%) adds body, complexity, and depth.

Fumé Blanc: 92 points

Awarded 92 points by JamesSuckling.com (February 2024), Winemaker Natalie West says of the Fumé Blanc:

“This wine is crafted with intention to reflect the diversity of our vineyard sites while maintaining the style that Ferrari-Carano is known for — a delicious wine balanced in delicacy and complexity.”

How it’s made: When the grapes arrive at the winery, each lot is gently crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks for 48 hours of cold settling. The juice is either transferred to stainless steel tanks or older French oak barrels for fermentation. The wine in barrels is sur lie aged and stirred every other week for two months, then blended and bottled.
