Nose: Generous tropical and stone fruit aromas: pineapple, mango, peach, and green pear, braced with racier notes of grapefruit, orange-citrus and kiwi. Floral notes of apple blossom mingle with subtle grassy tones. Palate: Steely and racy up front, yielding to a surprisingly supple mid-palate and polished finish. Shows honeycrisp apple, cantaloupe, peach, and lemon-zest flavors, ending subtly and lingering on mineral-toned finish.


CG 93 Pts Winemaker Notes - This distinctive blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon is regularly acclaimed as a classic white wine from Washington State. It’s also our most popular Cadaretta bottling. Grape sourcing is key to making this style of wine, because the wine is so “transparent”…there are no winemaking tricks or oak barrels to obscure the natural fruit of the vine. Fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, with one month of lees contact, our SBS is bottled early in the Spring following thevintage, to capture all its fine fruit character in the bottle.


According to the Connoisseurs Guide - Smelling of ripe melons and a suggestion of fig and drifting more towards honeyed richness than to the green side of the variety, this wine combines the pert fruit of Sauvignon Blanc with the rounder potential offered by Semillon and hits on all cylinders in the bargain. Its palatal fullness is balanced by underlying fruit energy, and its youthful acidity is part and parcel of its long finish, and, in combination, they will help the wine age for a few years. rated 90+
