LaStella Vivace Pinot Grigio 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPear skin, yellow apple, musk melon and lees rules this tight, light and chiselled pinot grigio. The winery terms that "Vivace is Grigio gone to CrossFit." Sourced from Oliver's Golden Mile, as well as Naramata (65/35 split), this spent four months on lees in stainless steel. Juicy, bright and energetic, this is still quite sculptured, with bitter pear sides framing the slight, bright fruit and bitter-edged, lees-led and salted palate. Bone dry, this is a lovely food wine at 12.3 degrees.
