Northstar 2010 Stella Blanca Semillon Columbia Valley

2010 Stella Blanca Semillon

Other vintages:

Stella Blanca is the white wine partner to the Stella Maris red blend. This Semillon is bright, fresh and crisp.

A cool vintage marked by a mild spring and cool summer, followed by warmer weather during harvest which allowed grapes to ripen to maturity. The cooler weather conditions during the growing season resulted in grapes with optimum ripeness and sugar levels, concentrated flavors, and bright acidity.

Diversity of vineyards and sub-appellations within the Columbia Valley are Northstar’s hallmarks. Fruit is chosen from the very best possible sources throughout the Columbia Valley. The Northstar team works closely with each grower to achieve specific fruit quality and yield parameters. The Semillon comes from the oldest block at Vineyard 10 (1978) in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA.
