After missing tasting the 2019 vintage due to a change in ownership, BC gem Sea Star is back with spring releases. This Ortega, one of the calling cards of the Wine Islands, is grown at Clam Bay Farm on Pender Island. Tight and sleek, this is shaped with pithy lime, lemon sherbet, and pink grapefruit verve, with green melon and starfruit shining throughout. This rings with coastal salinity, and is a natural match for our seafood.
