Kit Singh’s success with blending Sauvignon Blanc and Sèmillon is not surprising considering that his mentor is Chris Upchurch, the acclaimed founding winemaker at DeLille Cellars whose Chaleur Estate Blanc ranks as one of the top white wines produced in the Pacific Northwest each year. Singh’s expression with these two white Bordeaux grapes opens with notes of Granny Smith apple, starfruit, jicama, daikon radish and minerality. There’s a rich entry of Ginger Gold apple and apricot, backed by Asian pear and starfruit. Gorgeous lime acidity and and minerality come through to provide succulence without bitterness. Suggested fare includes fresh seafood, linguini and clam sauce or a cheese with antipasto.
