Kate and Thomas at first shied away from making a Sauvignon Blanc. They wanted to steer clear of the tropical, grassy notes often found in wines made from unripe grapes. The fruit comes from organically farmed vineyards, half from the Redford Wetle Vineyard in Eola-Amity Hills, and the other half from the Allegre Vineyard in the Columbia Gorge. This wine is fermented with native yeasts and aged 'sur lie' in a combination of large neutral oak barrels, older Burgundy barrels, and stainless steel. This aromatic, racy Sauvignon Blanc is incredibly nuanced, and as prices for Sancerre continue to soar, La Frontiandegrave;re provides a savory alternative.
