LaStella Vivace Pinot Grigio 2023

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaConsistently of the Okanagan's top Gris / Grigio's, and the 2023 is shining at present. From Southern Okanagan's Kaur Vineyard and Eagle Bluff Vineyard, and vines up into their early 20s, this aged 6 months in a mix of 66% stainless / 34% concrete tulips, with occasional b√Ętonnage. Much more in the Italian grigio vein, with vibrant and crunchy tangerine, white grapefruit, green apple, and fresh lemongrass skipping along the palate, with a lees slicked, river stone base. Lovely purity and energy here, though the saline finish.Tasted: 09 July 2024Tasted by: Prices:
