Fuder is German for a large wooden vessel, used in this case for the fermentation and aging of wine. Hints of struck-match complexity mark the nose, giving way to notes of grilled nectarine. The wine is full and rich in the mouth, with a mouthwatering finish that marries stone fruit and pink grapefruit into a stunning finale.
A complex, waxy and textural take on the theme, lime and lemon fruits, hints of tropicals, honeysuckle and stony elements, the palate is supple, smooth and even, more lemon and tropicals here, pineapple to close. Drink now, really open.
All of the Giesen "The Fuder" wines are made in large, 1,000-liter German oak fuders and come from single vineyards. The oak stands out a bit on the 2013 The Fuder Matthews Lane Sauvignon Blanc, opening with cedar notes over a peach and citrus fruit core, plus passion fruit and some bay leaves. The medium to full-bodied palate is concentrated with rich, savory flavors, lively acidity and a good long finish.
