2021 Appassionata Über Sauvignon Blanc

Very little Sauvignon Blanc is grown in the Willamette Valley, but it performs well in the section of our vineyard that stands out for its alluvial clay soil. The Über Sauvignon is fermented and matured in large-format acacia barrels, which gives it the textural benefits of wooden casks, but without any oak taste. It’s an envigorating prelude to any Appassionata performance.

Production notes

Whole-cluster pressing; natural fermentation in a 500-liter acacia barrel and a 600-liter concrete egg.

Classic aromas and flavors of gooseberries, lime, green apple, and freshly cut grass show up, as does a dynamite one-two talc and saline punch. There’s also an intriguing savory note similar to porcini mushrooms. Tart acidity combines with a surprisingly creamy texture. This is a fantastic drinking experience. - Wine Enthusiast, April 2023
