Wine of the Week: Sierra Vista 2010 Fumé Blanc-Sauvignon Blanc


Posted on February 11


 

It’s hard to believe that, mere months from now, we’ll all be reveling in Sacramento’s glorious, warm weather. And when that sunny season hits, you’ll need a refreshing, friendly white wine on hand to quaff as you gleefully wave the frosty winter goodbye and head outside to crank up your backyard barbecue. So set aside a bottle or two of Sierra Vista winery’s 2010 Fumé Blanc-Sauvignon Blanc, an uncomplicated, crisp white that’s the perfect partner to your pre-dinner cheese platter, lighter shellfish dishes, grilled chicken pizza and vibrant, vegetable-laden Asian stir fries. Teeming with bright, perky flavors of pink grapefruit, lemon peel and ripe melon, the wine offers a subtle, herbaceous-grassy kick in the finish, nicely balanced acidity and a refined, easygoing character you're sure to enjoy.
