Blue Grouse Estate Ortega 2017

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaOrtega has come to be a calling card of the Wine Islands, and Blue Grouse's is one of the highlights. From vines now 25 years old, this was fermented in stainless and without MLF, keeping the fruit shining. Two months on the lees lends a slight cushion to buffer the acidity. Crisp, tight and bright white, laced with citrus, melon, mandarin to a snappy, slightly bitter finish. Ideal with coastal shellfish and salads.Tasted: 19 June 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 19.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Blue Grouse Estate WineryDistributors: Coastal Craft Beverages
