2018 Grgich Hills Estate Grown Dry Sauvignon Blanc - Fume Blanc Napa Valley California USA
Juicy tropical fruit and lemongrass flavors with a touch of minerality at the end of a long finish that are perfect with a wide range of food.
Pair this wine alongside fish tacos, fresh goat cheese, and spicy Asian noodles.
Grgich Hills Fumé Blancs are always emphatically grassy and this one goes right to the limits, but its ongoing herbaceousness is tempered by deep and continuous fruit, and the combination here is striking. The wine is at once lively and moderately full-bodied with the structure to keep and grow for a good many years, and, when all is said and done, this latest edition is as long on value as it is on character and complexity.
