Sea Star Blanc de Noir Rosé 2020

Southern Gulf Islands, British Columbia, CanadaAfter missing tasting the 2019 vintage due to a change in ownership, BC gem Sea Star is back with their 2020 Blanc de Noir. With Pinot Noir grape from their estate Saturna Island vineyards. A light salmon hue, this is crunchy and brisk, with tart cherry, raspberry, underripe pear, tangerine, pink grapefruit, on a distinctly marine, saline, bone dry palate. While it doesn't share the finesse and elegance of the 2018, this youthful rosé shows ample intensity and character, which may settle with some time in bottle.Tasted: 25 March 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 25.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Sea Star Estate Farm and VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
