2020 Highwayman Fume Blanc
This 2020 Fumé Blanc is the best vintage produced to date. It was created by harvesting the best of the MacLeod Sauvignon Blanc lots--hillside and flats--and finished in neutral French oak barrels with toasted heads for about four months. From the nose--fresh citrus zest, bright melon and tropical notes prevail. And the midpalate--a lush, round and full mouthfeel. Light, friendly acidity balances this wine out wonderfully and drives it home with a fresh, lingering finish. This is definitely a welcome return to the Highwayman lineup. Pairs exceptionally well with chicken under a brick with sage and garlic, shrimp honey-garlic stir fry or olive oil citrus almond cake.
