It’s all about the fruit. For her “Dog Series” wines, Brenda has one goal in mind - create fruit-forward wines with varietally true aromatics, mid palate weight and flavor, and a full-bodied and balanced finish. Brenda sources her fruit from a variety of appellations within California always letting the quality of the fruit drive her selections. Her travels always seem to have stops in beach towns for a cold beer at the local pub, which she claims are an equally important part of her winemaking!
Our 2018 Fou Fou Le Blanc shows a brilliant straw yellow color in the glass and opens to delicate aromas of ripe melon and apricot. Crisp and fresh with the balance and structure our white wine fans have come to love, our 2018 Fou Fou Le Blanc White will be welcomed as another standout release. The mid palate flavors of melon, pear and citrus are delicate and elegant. Near perfect acidity gives it the structure that delivers a clean and fresh finish. As with all of Brenda’s Dog Series whites - no oak. She lets the fruit speak (or bark) for itself.
Food Pairing Notes
In some ways, Fou Fou needs no food pairing as it is the perfect aperitif wine. But if it graces your dinner table, we enjoy Fou Fou best with fresh white fish - snapper in ginger sauce, or try the classic sole almondine.
