Wine of the Week 

The term "Fumé Blanc," developed by California wine industry marketing mavens, is really just another name for Sauvignon Blanc, that wonderfully food-friendly, clean and refreshing white wine. This well-balanced, crisp Ferrari-Carano offers light herbal aromas with hints of wildflowers, followed by lush fig and melon flavors. Unlike most Sauvignon Blancs that never see wood, this wine was partially aged in oak which adds to the wine's richness. A delicious accompaniment to vegetables such as asparagus, green beans and zucchini, salads, shellfish, fin-fish, pastas, feta and goat cheeses. Available at most Sav-A-Centers, Whole Foods Market on Magazine Street, all Albertson's (including the new store on Tulane Avenue), Dorignac's, Langenstien's (in Metairie), Breaux Mart on Severn Avenue, Prytania Liquor Store, The Wine Seller, Elio's Wine Warehouse, Martin Wine Cellar Uptown and Metairie, Acquistapace's Covington Super Market and Hugh's Wine Cellar in Covington.
