Cedergreen Cellars 2016 Sauvignon Blanc, Columbia Valley, $17
Considering that he worked two harvests in New Zealand, it’s almost natural that Kevin Cedergreen developed into one of Washington’s top producers of Sauvignon Blanc. Solstice Vineyard, a historic Yakima Valley site established in 1980, and Meek Vineyard combine for yet another extraordinary offering by the Kirkland vintner. It’s oak-free, allowing for a full and bright expression of kiwi, lime and grapefruit with Granny Smith apple and grassiness. The Cedergreens don’t operate a tasting room, but they more than doubled production in 2016, so it should be even easier to spot their distinctive red square at wine shops, restaurants and grocers with wine stewards such as Central Market, PCC, QFC and Whole Foods. Enjoy with crab, oysters, shrimp, scallops or Swedish potato sausage.
Production: 1,300 cases
