J Christopher Wines 2016 Sauvignon Blanc

A highly aromatic Sauvignon Blanc, made in the clean, fresh style of France’s Loire Valley. Sauvignon Blanc, although not widely planted in the Willamette Valley, is ideally suited to the same climate as Pinot Noir. Winemaker Jay Somers likes to remind you that while Sancerre is known for some of the finest Sauvignon Blancs, Pinot Noir is also grown there. They offer a few different takes on this noble white grape. The Willamette Valley Sauvignon Blanc is more delicate and focused, with a bright, refreshing finish, while our bottling of the Croft Vineyard showcases the intensity and richness of the this unique vineyard with a softer texture.

This Sancerre inspired Sauvignon Blanc does not have any of the pyrazines (think: green pepper) that I hate! YAY! It's mineral driven with racy acidity and super delicious. There are very few new world Sauvignon Blancs I would ever recommend, but this one is a winner.
