ABOUT THIS WINE:
Proof that Sauvignon Blanc made the right way can be terroir wine, the short distance between Union School and La Chenaie belies the profoundly different ways in which the two sites express themselves. We make the two wines exactly the same way but the Eola-Amity Hills highlights wholly different attributes in Sauvignon Blanc. This expression is more sophisticated than it’s southern brother and incorporates a savory aspect we find fascinating. Texturally is carries more weight and depth without being ponderous.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:
Established in 2010, Bow & Arrow is Scott Frank's interpretation of the Willamette Valley’s humble terroir. The most important parts of that equation are the Willamette Valley and “humble.” The growing region is frequently approached as a grand terroir destined to produce prestigious wines with an implicit Burgundian influence. Bow & Arrow uses a different template to explore a different, simpler side of the Willamette Valley. Instead of Burgundy, Frank pays homage to the refreshing and decidedly working class wines of France’s Loire Valley.
Bow & Arrow sources its fruit from a small group of reliably outstanding farmers who were willing to take a risk grafting or planting the varieties Frank needed and to farm them in a way that was aligned with the winery's beliefs. While there is no one “house style”, Bow & Arrow embraces a principal of drinkability and low-intervention; a humble word that embodies the spirit of wine drinking we celebrate.
