    Best Buy! Launched by Washington wine entrepreneur Harry Alhadeff in the 1980s in the Yakima Valley, Apex Cellars is now part of Precept Wines in Seattle. The winery remains in the Yakima Valley, residing in the Vintners Village in Prosser. This Sauvignon Blanc is a frisky wine with aromas of sweet herbs, freshly mown grass and honeycomb. The palate is highlighted by bright acidity and an immediate hit of lime juice, along with flavors of apple and minerality. It's a yummy wine to pair with scallops, halibut or baked chicken.

    Recommended2010 VintageThe Seattle TimesPaul GreguttAugust 13, 2011"My personal favorite summer white is sauvignon blanc. This one is complex, crisp and balanced. You'll find flavors of mixed citrus, green apple and fruit rind." -Paul Gregutt, August 13, 2011

    Grapefruit and gooseberry scents and flacors mark this as a New Zealand-style Sauvignon Blanc, and a very good one at that. The acidity carries the fruit, and brings a zesty freshness to the finish. - Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast, July 2011


    tasting notes

    Pale straw, with a hint of green. Grapefruit, passion fruit and lime with nuances of fresh garden herbs. Firm, bright and minerality-driven. Fuller mouthfeel, finish is defined and will lengthen with time in bottle.
