Bimbadgen MCA Series XIV Fumé Blanc 2014
The Sauvignon Blanc for this wine comes from Orange. Half of it spent five months in new and old French Oak, hence why it is called Fumé Blanc - giving a hint of oak character.
This is more melons and passionfruit than the grassy acidic cat's piss that Sauv Blanc can be.
Fresh with a liveliness but the tempo is settled by the ever so subtle oak. It just feels and tastes good - and I don't generally like Sauv Blanc - but I like this. Lots. Guzzle juice.
Find it. Very good.
