This is achieved by fermenting a proportion of the fruit in oak barrels. The fruit used is usually Sauvignon Blanc, but in some vintages also includes Semillon.The primary difference comes after the wine has been produced and how it is aged. Fume Blanc is a Sauvignon Blanc that is typically aged in oak barrels after fermentation while Sauvignon Blanc is traditionally aged in stainless steel vats after fermentation.Although there are certainly exceptions, Fume Blanc typically sees a bit of oak and displays rounder, richer, more melon-like flavors. Sauvignon Blanc, on the other hand, often displays the grassy and sharper citrus aromatics of the varietal.
