Availability: Direct from winery and select VQA shops.
Production: 590 cases
Date Tasted: July 13th, 2010
Tasting Notes: If you're looking for a tasty, well-made, slightly exotic and refreshing Summer-sipper, than this is the wine for you. Lastella has created a wonderfully refreshing Pinot Grigio full of bright orchard and tropical fruits on the nose and palate. Stainless steel fermentation and a very low-yielding, gravely Westbank vineyard combine to concentrate flavours and let the fruit sing. Some residual sugar (7g/l) balances beautifully with the citrus acidity and minerality. Pairs with a sun-drenched deck and good company. Drink now.
