Sea Star Stella Maris

Sea Star Stella Maris 2019

Southern Gulf Islands, British Columbia, CanadaStella Maris translates as Star of the Sea, and is the winery's flagship blend, changing every vintage. This year it is organically grown gewürztraminer, pinot noir, schonburger, ortega, and chardonnay, from their estate vineyards on Pender and Saturna. Bright and shining with orchard fruit, melon, grapefruit, white blossoms, on a coastal crisp and fresh, slender, just off-dry palate, finishing with lime pith and saline briskness. Such a lovely example of uber-marine wines.Tasted: 26 June 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 25.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Sea Star Estate Farm and VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
