Bottled in April 2022, we have kept this wine in the cellar aging for several months aging and awaiting release. Bottled directly off of the lees, shortly after malolactic fermentation was completed.
Slightly reductive on the nose, with notes of bell pepper, honey and vanilla, the pallet is creamy with a lovely acidic backbone that carries the finish.
Aged in used french oak barrels for five months, and bottled unfiltered.
At Traynor Family Vineyard, we are committed to crafting wines that are unique and delicious. This Fume Blanc is the result of our experimentation, and we believe it is the perfect representation of our winemaking style.
Food Pairing Suggestions:
- Seafood such as grilled or poached fish, scallops, and shrimp with a lemon or butter sauce
- Poultry dishes such as roast chicken or turkey with a creamy sauce
- Creamy pasta dishes or risottos with herbs such as parsley or basil
- Soft and creamy cheeses such as brie, camembert, and triple cream varieties
- Spicy dishes such as Thai curries or Mexican mole sauce
The acidity and minerality of this Fume Blanc make it an excellent pairing for dishes with bright and zesty flavours, such as seafood with lemon or butter sauce, or creamy pasta dishes with herbs. The wine's subtle vanilla and butter notes also complement rich and creamy dishes such as risottos and soft cheeses. Additionally, the wine's acidity and minerality can cut through the spiciness of dishes like Thai curries or Mexican mole sauce.
