Bow & Arrow
Melon, Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Willamette Valley, Washington
Better known as Muscadet, this is the grape responsible for the classic French wine famous for its versatility with all things Ocean born. Sourced from multiple vineyards and aged in vat for 6 - 8 months our version treads the same ground as the wines that inspired it. Briney, crystalline, and quenching this wine is made for summer feasts as well as winter seafood sessions. Winery Notes.
*Not made with Melons
From a vineyard in the southern part of the Willamette Valley, Union School was the first site we sourced Sauvignon Blanc from and turned out to be perfectly suited to make this traditional style of Sauvignon Blanc not much in vogue these days. However, riper, barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc has a rich history in the Loire Valley of France and is the inspiration for our house style. Fermented in large format French oak puncheon and aged in the cellar for 10 months. Think Jasmine blossoms, nectarines and grapefruit peel and you get the idea of how we express this grape variety.
