Sea Star Blanc de Noir Rosé

Sea Star Blanc de Noir Rosé 2017

Pender Island, Southern Gulf Islands, British Columbia, CanadaConsistently one of BC's top rosés, and the 2017 lives up to expectations. Pale salmon hue, slicked with lees and imbued with wild strawberry, raspberry blossoms, crunchy pear, cranberry and a fine lingering pink grapefruit and shimmer of spice. This year's version is a slight bit more supple on the palate, offsetting the crisp, coastal acidity. This is whole cluster, organic Pender Island pinot noir from both Sea Star's home estate, and nearby Clam Bay Farm. Perfectly balanced, fresh and food-friendly.Tasted: 01 June 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 19.04 winery direct; private wine shops Producer: Sea Star Estate Farm and VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
