Cadaretta Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2008
Wine EnthusiastThis Aussie-style blend is 79% Sauvignon Blanc and 21% Sémillon. It's lush and bright, with fresh flavors of pineapple and grapefruit. Showing firm acids and nice nuances of tangerine, orange and lemon peel, it's very refreshing and textural. The finish adds spice and a bit of cinnamon.
Wine AdvocateCadaretta's 2008 SBS is a blend of 79% Sauvignon Blanc and 21% Semillon fermented and raised in stainless steel. Medium straw-colored, it has a fragrant bouquet of spring flowers, citrus, melon, and bees wax. It is medium-bodied, dry, crisp, and concentrated. On the palate notes of baking spices, lemon-lime, and mineral notes lead into a fleshy, savory finish. Drink this refined effort over the next 3 years.
Wine SpectatorBright and appealing for its nectarine and pear fruit, bouncing with lively intensity over refreshing acidity. Drink now.
