2019 Über-Sauvignon Blanc
Über Savignon is a barrel-fermented, single-vineyard Sauvignon Blanc from our own Appassionata estate vineyard, which surrounds our winery in the Chehalem Mountains. It is fermented and matured in large (600-liter) acacia barrels, which add complexity and a refined texture to its mineral-driven aromas and bracing acidity. A small portion is fermented in a concrete egg, which also adds depth and texture. Although not widely planted in Oregon's Willamette Valley, we believe that Sauvignon Blanc is ideal for this climate and makes fantastic wine here.

Tart and snappy, this nicely focused wine brings crisp apple, pear and melon fruit into the center ring. Aged and fermented in Acacia casks, it's lightly touched with vanilla and finishes fresh and clean.
