2015 Cadaretta SBS

2015 Cadaretta SBS

Our 2015 vintage … fresh, vivid, and crisp Columbia Valley white blend. Quite dry, bottled without oak contact. 89% Sauvignon Blanc and 11% Semillon.

Fresh tropical and stone fruit aromas (mango and peach), braced with racier notes of lemon-lime citrus with background notes of pear and kiwi fruit. The crisp mouthfeel and nish makes the SBS a perfect pairing for seafood or salad.

The 2015 vintage was among the warmest in Washington State in the last 20 years. 2015 was comparable to (but slightly warmer than) 2003 and 2014. 2015 was marked by an early budbreak that made for accelerated plant and fruit development throughout the growing season. It was warmer than ideal for SBS, and any great white wines. Careful vineyard monitoring was essential. Harvest began on August 20, much earlier than normal.

VARIETAL COMPOSITION:

89% Sauvignon Blanc, primarily from Frenchman Hills Vineyard (Columbia Valley), with a smaller portion from Arthur’s Vineyard (Yakima Valley).

11% SeĢmillon, approximately equal quantities from Rosebud Vineyard (Wahluke Slope) and Charbonneau Vineyard (Columbia Valley).
