A popular and common white found worldwide, Sauvignon Blanc offers a crisp, clean profile with vibrant acidity and a refreshing citrus fruitiness.

“Fumé Blanc” is a name invented by California winemaker Robert Mondavi as a way to distinguish his softer oakier style from the classic un-oaked leaner versions.
