'Les Fumees Blanches takes its name from the light morning mists which drift like white smoke over the foothill vineyards. In these relatively cool microclimates Sauvignon Blanc develops the smoky, slightly pungent aromas which are part of the unique personality of the grape.
Francois Lurton vinifies this wine in the modern style which he has perfected, precisely capturing all the fresh delicate aromas of the variety.
An intense wine with cherry, ripe plum fruit aromas and warm, earthy spice. The palate is densely packed with morello cherry, cassis and bramble fruit flavours. Tannins are ripe, giving structure to a substantial wine with a fresh sappy finish.
