LaStella Winery 2010 Vivace - 88pts

LaStella Winery 2010 Vivace (Osoyoos) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here and VQA stores
Cost: $25
Alcohol: 14.2%
Production: 635 cases
Date Tasted: March 10th, 2011

Tasting Notes: The 2010 vintage yielded juicy Pinot Gris grapes in Lastella's West Bank vineyard site which sees the alcohol in the Vivace jump from 13.5% in 2009 to 14.2% in the 2010 release. Yet, the balance is spot on with good acidity and enough residual sugar to mask the alcohol and create a joyful and full-ish texture on your palate. With citrus characters aplenty, this wine should be enjoyed in its youth and paired with a fruity, summer salad or with your favourite sun-filled deck. Drink 2011-2013.
