2012 Oakvile Fumé Blanc - 93 Points - Wine & Spirits
Wine & Spirits, U.S. New Releases
Grown at To-Kalon, where Mondavi planted what are now its oldest dry-farmed, head-pruned sauvignon vines in 1960, this is mostly from a younger planting on that site from the early 1990s. The wine barrel-fermented in older oak and aged ten months on the lees. So you'd expect a major oak presence and something creamy-rich. You get that, plus a persistence of nectarine and white peach flavor, creating a fascinating dynamic with the oak tannins, together enhancing the earthy character of the fruit. - Joshua Greene
