La Stella 2017 Leggiero Un-Oaked Chardonnay

The best Italian Chardonnay hails from the hillsides of cool climate regions of Northern Italy, most notably: Alto Adige and Friuli. Almost always made in an un-oaked fashion, it is a wine that expresses the pure minerality of Chardonnay with beautiful acidity and crisp fruit flavours. 2017 Leggiero offers up a balance of green apple, bartlett pear, bergamot and key lime pie. The palate is harmonious with a great burst of lemon and green apple on the mid-palate that plays into a medium length sappy mineral-infused finish. When it comes to pairings, fresh coastal BC and Washington oysters are a no brainer. Salish Mussels steamed in a light white wine, lemon grass and ginger broth is also one of our favorite pairings
