Clyde Park Fumé Blanc 2018
Region: Moorabool Valley, Geelong
The Estate Fumé Blanc is a new wine for us here at Clyde Park. Sauvignon Blanc picked from the Bordeaux clone F14V9, it is given 18 hours skin contact with stalks before being pressed straight to 100% oak with 25% new French oak. Natural ferment on full solids occurs and then aged for 6 months before blending and bottling. This is a new expression of Sauvignon, showing more citrus peel and grapefruit pith but a beautiful underlying complexity from the lees and oak aging.
