Wine’ing: Wednesday: Going back to Cali, Cali, Cali…

“New World” wines can be generically classified as any wine grown outside of the traditional European wine making regions. The New World  focused last night was California and Washington State.

The Pinot Noirs from Washington state were a standout since the cooler climate is ideal for the pinot noir grape. In comparison to the rest of the United States, Washington State has strictest regulations regarding what can be called a true 'Pinot Noir.'

Care for a Fume Blanc? Well you can thank Robert Mondavi for that addition to your wine cellar. Fume Blancs are nade from ripen Sauvignon Blanc grapes that originally produced overly sweet wines. By aging the well ripen grapes in wood to off set the sweetness (a style Mondavi adapted from the Loire Valley) and executing an exquisite marketing plan, California’s Fume Blancs have become one the regions most popular wines.

----------------
"The term Fume Blanc is acceptable in the United States as a direct synonym with Sauvignon Blanc. Though many wineries attempt to differentiate between styles by using either the term Fume Blanc or Sauvignon Blanc, one should be aware that this distinction is voluntary, and not all wineries follow the practice." - http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-fume-blanc.htm
