Made here in Victoria but with a deep Loire Valley influence. 'Fume Blanc' is the name given to some Sauvignon Blanc wines in the Loire Valley region around Sancerre and Pouilly Fume. It is important to notice than Fume Blanc is a style and not a grape. Fume Blanc is barrel-fermented which gives a smoky flavour to the wine ('Fume' in French means smoked). Mount Mary is a premier winery of the Yarra Valley and in the top echelon of wineries in Australia. It has been producing exceptional quality wines since its debut in 1971. Mount Mary was one of the foremost pioneers of the rebirth of the Yarra Valley after 50 years without viticultural activity. Its late founder, Dr John Middleton, practised near-obsessive attention to detail long before that phrase became part of the oenological vernacular. He has passed his attention to detail to his son Sam Middleton, the head winemaker who is leading Mount Mary into its second golden age. A true jewel of the Yarra Valley!
