Last night’s wine

Winemaker’s notes:

Here is a mouthful of refreshing fruit flavors – citrus, nectarines and white peaches – with an aromatic hint of lemongrass. A blending component of 6% Sauvignon Musqué adds floral components and rounds the wine’s texture.

Murphy-Goode 2003 Fume Blanc is an appealing and popular aperitif. The wine’s succulent fruit and good acidity complement fresh oysters, spinach frittata and pizza with young goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoes. Try a glass with a bowl of garlicky steamed clams or mussels.

That’s a good description of the wine we had last night. We had it with potato-encrusted cod, sauteed broccoli rabe with garlic, and some lovely, very crispy, french fries.

I’m a big fan of Fume/Sauvignon Blancs. Some, of course, are better than others. This one wasn’t as good as my all-time favorite (a Grgich Hills Fume Blanc), but it wasn’t as expensive either.

All in all, I thought it was a very good wine that went well with our meal. Can’t ask for much more than that.

    I don’t know much about wine, but N always drinks sauvignon blanc or pouilly fume (same grape, apparently). I don’t know if that’s the same as fume blanc – we don’t have that in Europe, so I’m guessing it is. I drink whatever I’m given. LOL!
