Wine Maker Notes
REGION: The grapes for this wine come from vineyards located in the Upper and Western Galilee of Israel, partucularly our vineyards in Eklkosh and Safsufa (Hoshen). WINEMAKING:Fume Blanc is made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes that were selectively hand picked at the beginning of August. Close proximity to the winery allowed for immediate crushing and chilling. 30% of the juice was allowed to naturally ferment in large 500 liter barrels. After fermentation the wine was blended with 15% Semillon and aged for a further 3 months in oak.
This wine is great with a whole host of dishes, including grilled or baked fish e.g. tuna, snapper or red mullet, Fume Blanc is equally at home with roast chicken and will also sit comfortably besides spicy dishes such as Thai food.
