Sea Star Blanc de Noir Rosé 2018

Southern Gulf Islands, British Columbia, CanadaConfirming its seat as one of BC's top wineries again with the first of the 2018's, this is also the year when it's becoming crystal clear that The Wine Islands are also making some of BC's top rosés. Sea Star blanc de noir is one of those leading the pinks, a light salmon hue, and flowing with spiced cherry, herbal raspberry, pink grapefruit, and ample pink peppercorn spicing, which lingers on its silken finish. This carries a confidence and intelligent intensity that belies its 11.9 degrees frame. Well done. This pinot noir is sourced from three vineyards on Pender and Saturna Islands, and from vines 11-24 years oldTasted: 05 May 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 25.00 winery direct; private wine shops Producer: Sea Star Estate Farm and VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
