Fumé Blanc 2023

Fumé is a French term for smoky and is associated with Sauvignon Blanc (nick-named Blanc Fumé) from Pouilly-Fumé in France's Loire Valley where fumé describes the variety's struck match, gunflint aroma.    In New World regions it refers to Sauvignon Blanc that has been fermented or matured in oak; this is Woody Nook's interpretation of the style.  A complex, textural wine with lifted guava and citrus notes enhanced by quality French oak.
