J. Christopher Sauvignon Blanc Über Sauvignon 2018

America, Oregon

Über-Sauvignon is a single-vineyard Sauvignon Blanc from the excellent Croft vineyard.  Mineral-driven aromas, with bracing acidity and a refined texture, make this one of the most interesting wines that we produce. Although not widely planted in Oregon’s Northern Willamette Valley, we feel Sauvignon Blanc is ideal for this climate and makes fantastic wine here. We have planted two acres of it in our own Appassionata vineyard.

Winery Description

J. Christopher is owned by Ernst “Erni” Loosen, the internationally acclaimed winemaker behind Germany’s Dr. Loosen and Villa Wolf estates. Erni has a lifelong passion for Pinot Noir, and he recognized in the early 1990s that there was something very special going on here in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. He became an avid collector of Oregon Pinot Noir, visiting the state often and establishing his U.S. import company here in 2003.
Erni was particularly drawn to the wines of J. Christopher. Here, he saw, was a New World wine made in the unhurried Old World style with finesse, a clear expression of terroir, and excellent aging potential. A collaboration soon followed with a finely selected, high-end Pinot that Erni named Appassionata, after the Beethoven piano sonata. A few vintages later, Erni cemented his investment in Oregon by purchasing 40 acres on Chehalem Mountain in Newberg, planting the Appassionata Vineyard, and building the winery where we continue to produce Appassionata and J. Christopher wines today.
