Poppelvej - 2019 'Irresistible Impulse' Fumé Blanc
What is Fumé Blanc? Simple, it's Sauvignon Blanc! The term first sort of came about in the late 60's, and it was used to refer to a style of Sauv that came out of Pouilly-Fumé - dry fermented, oak aged, fruit centric wine.
This wine was made by Uffe, a Danish native but now permanent Mclaren Vale resident, with 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Kuitpo Forest in the Adelaide Hills, farmed organically. It does see a touch of new oak, but instead of becoming cloying, it gives it a wonderful, lifted white floral nose. Pretty, new citrus, the perfect accompaniement to seafood and sunshine.
