Featured Cadaretta SBS Wines
70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon
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.
Our SBS is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc (76%) and Semillon (24%). The Sauvignon Blanc grapes for the blend came from four vineyards: Frenchman Hills Vineyard (45%), Tagus One (14%), Desert Hill (10%) and our own Southwind Estate Vineyard. The Semillon came from Rosebud Vineyard (14%), Klipsun (7%) and our Southwind Estate (3%).
Our SBS is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc (75%) and Semillon (25%). The Sauvignon Blanc grapes for the blend came from two vineyards: Spring Creek Vineyard (50%) and Frenchman Hills Vineyard (25%). The Semillon came from Spring Creek Vineyard (14%) and Rosebud Vineyard (11%).
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes for the blend came from two vineyards: Spring Creek Vineyard and Arete Vineyard. The Semillon came from Arete Vineyard. The Spring Creek vineyard sits at 900 feet elevation with a southeastern exposure in Washington’s Yakima Valley.
Our estate vineyard is in development in the Walla Walla Valley. As we wait for those young vineyard blocks to produce fruit, we source grapes from select vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley and Columbia Valley AVAs. We work closely with each grape grower and our selected blocks from their vineyards to assure top quality fruit for Cadaretta.
