Bow & Arrow Melon 2019

Willamette Valley, Oregon, United StatesBow & Arrow is a tiny husband and wife winery based in NW Portland in 2010. They source grapes from across the Willamette's top organic / biodynamic vineyards. This comes from various vineyards across the valley, and post native ferment in stainless this rested 9 months on lees before heading to bottle without fining or filtration, and with minimal sulphur throughout. Bright and shining, this ably blends melon's penchant for sleek salinity with the Valley's bright orchard fruit. Crisp apple, crunchy melon is livened with a quenching saltiness and lined with an earthy cushion of lees. Impactful, impressive, and highly smashable wine for 11%.Tasted: 14 January 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 private wine shops Producer: Bow & ArrowDistributors: Massey Wines & Spirits Ltd.
