Sea Star Salish Sea, 2015


Of the three Sea Star whites we pick up on a regular basis this is the least of my favorites yet it’s still more than palatable.  A bit too light for my liking outside of a patio quaff, it is in fact a versatile food wine and much friendlier to the diversity of West Coast cuisine than half of the Okanagan.  Rich, fruity flavours that bring on memories of the Fruit Loops Toucan, pear, apple, even kumquat, and a little of the Del Monte fruit salad cups.  At a mere 12% you can imbibe openly at lunch and still be productive mid-afternoon!  Amazing what can be done on Pender Island.


Price: Around $20.


Market Liquidity: The no pretense white.
