Clos du Soleil Fumé Blanc
The nose of this wine immediately envelops the taster in ripe fruit aromas of pineapple, passion fruit and lime. On the palate the wine is full bodied and multi-layered, incorporating flavours of tropical fruit including pineapple and passion fruit, with characteristic varietal flavours of grapefruit, as well as a subtle hint of oak.
Clos du Soleil’s Fumé Blanc is a full-flavoured, aromatic take on Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.
Food Pairing Notes
Crisp and refreshing, this is a wine that is easy to enjoy by itself, but pairs wonderfully with roast poultry, soft cheeses, and is a knock-out with all kinds of seafood!

90 points – John Schreiner, April 2013 90 points - www.winescores.ca, April 2013 Bronze – Wine Align National Wine Awards of Canada 2013 Inspired by the traditional barrel-fermented white wine from the Bordeaux region, our Fumé Blanc is an old world styled white with a new world taste. The bold aromatic Sauvignon Blanc is tamed by the softer, delicately fruity Sémillon. Delicious fruit combines in the bottle to show a nose of intense tropical juiciness with notes of passionfruit, pineapple, peaches & cream, and a hint of spice. In the mouth it is fresh, clean, and balanced. It has bright citrus and a full, complex mouthfeel brought by the subtle influence of oak and residual sweetness. It finishes very long with a slight grassy note that is both refreshing and satisfying.
