Dry Creek 2010 Fumé Blanc Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc, $11.99-$13.99, 88 points, has the clearest of color with just a single shade of lemon yellow to distinguish it from mineral water.
The aroma is a sweet lemon zest with faint hints of tangerine. The light to medium body carries a refreshingly crisp and tart lemon/lime flavor, but the texture and its mineral qualities never let you forget that 13.5% of what you are drinking is alcohol. The fair finish is a juicy reminder of what I just tasted.
I paired this wine satisfactorily with fried wild caught Atlantic Haddock.
This white wine will be enjoyed by everyone, not too dry and definitely not too sweet, but the flavor, though reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc wines in general (Without the cut grass), is pretty much cut and 'dry', but delicious.
