Made from organically grown grapes on Pender Island, this blend of Ortega and Siegerrebe captures the very essence of Sea Star. Inviting aromatics on the nose, citrus, tropical and orchard notes on top. A generous but well-tuned palate, wrapped in a generous mouthfeel. Hints of honey with tropical tones, spice and mineral notes through a lengthy finish. White blends are a dime a dozen in BC. Only a few are truly noteworthy. In combining two of the islands’ mainstay varieties, this wine amounts to a flagship offering, proving what truly can be accomplished with superb fruit, deftly balanced.
