Sea Star Ortega 2016

Pender Island, Southern Gulf Islands, British Columbia, CanadaPerfumed lime and pear blossoms ring throughout this bright and fruity ortega, one of the star grapes of the Wine Islands. A cross between müller-thurgau and siegerrebe, this streams with ripe peach, pink grapefruit, pithy mandarin and crystalline lemon peel. While coastal crisp, the 2016 shows a greater cushion on the palate, enough to marry with succulent spot prawns or scallops.Tasted: 10 May 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 17.30 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Sea Star Estate Farm and VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
