Cadaretta Wines is a new winery with a long history; It was founded in 2008 as an offshoot of Anderson & Middleton, a logging company founded in 1899.
Their wines follow the path that many great wines from Columbia Valley follow: toward France. In particular, toward refined but muscular Rhone and Bordeaux-style red wine blends.
The SBS is the winery’s only white in their portfolio, and it’s a worthy addition. It is a classic Bordeaux-style blend of Sauvignon blanc and Sémillon (28% of the blend).
Gooseberry, brine, and honey on the nose, flavors of cantaloupe, crushed white flowers, and a waxy honey element. The palate is rounder and richer than Sauvignon Blanc, but without any dilution to the zip zap zing of acidity.
