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.

The Cadaretta SBS is a wine designed to be enjoyed in its youth: it’s crisp, fruity and full of minerality. It has a vibrant luster to its straw-yellow color and is perfectly clear. The aromatics are intense, with pear and white flowers, and a back drop of honeysuckle and key-lime. On the palate the most striking aspect of this wine is the rush of juicy acidity that lights up your mouth with lemon-zest and stonefruit. The finish is a long, lingering sensation of purity and cleanliness.
