This small-lot wine is made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes sourced from our Tualatin Estate Vineyard first planted in 2010 and spanning just over 4 acres.
Staff from various departments worked as a team to develop an experimental block of Sauvignon Blanc at Tualatin Estate Vineyard as a "vine to wine" educational project. They researched rootstocks and vine materials, helped plant and farm the vines. This bottling represents our team's collaborative approach of making the highest quality wines possible from the Willamette Valley appellation and continuing to tell the Oregon story through unique offerings.
On the Nose: Lemon in color, the wine features vibrant aromas of grapefruit, passionfruit, lychee and lemongrass.
On the Palate: The palate is bright and juicy with citrus zest and melon flavors framed by minerality that leads to a long, refreshing finish.
Food Pairings: Enjoy with green vegetables like artichokes and asparagus, ceviche, fish tacos, grilled shrimp with green tahini sauce, radicchio salad with green olives and parmesan, arugula pesto pasta and goat cheese.

Tualatin Estate Vineyard
Tualatin Hills AVA
Tualatin Estate Vineyard, established in 1973 by Oregon wine pioneer Bill Fuller, is one of the oldest and most respected vineyard sites in Oregon. Covered in Laurelwood soil and Pisolites, the slope is south-facing with an elevation of 250-530 feet. Wine grapes from this 171-acre vineyard have produced world-renowned wines for more than 45 years. Tualatin is the only vineyard to have won the Best of Show for both the red and white categories at the London International Wine Competition in the same year. This is a feat unduplicated by any Oregon winery. Tualatin Estate Vineyard is proudly owned through a merger with Willamette Valley Vineyards accomplished in 1997.
