2017 Bella Terra Fumé Blanc
- Availability: In Stock
"Made with sauvignon blanc from a single vineyard in Niagara-on-the-Lake, this dry and developing white wine tastes slightly sweet due to the impressive concentration of fruit. It packs plenty of flavour and obvious oak influence, with spicy notes accenting an attractive mix of pea shoot, ripe citrus and tropical notes. The big, bold and fresh style makes it stand out."
"A gorgeous, smokey Niagara Sauvignon Blanc with a lusciously rich texture and finish. Notes of green apple and lemongrass. Perfect for rich seafood dishes."

Sourced from our Corus vineyard in the Lakeshore appellation, this Sauvignon Blanc was fermented and aged in seasoned French oak barrels. Half of the barrels were left to wild or spontaneous ferment which gives this wine a very complex palate and intriguing bouquet.
The nose is clean with aromas of fresh passion fruit and grapefruit peel. The palate is full-bodied with flavours of fresh fruit and citrus acidity. The excellent balance of sweet vanilla and a spicy complexity leads to a long and persistent finish.
Limited production of 12 barrels.
