Stella Blanca is one of Northstar winery’s labels in which it produces a red blend and this white rather than its flagship merlots. This wine wine is almost full Semillon with a splace of Muscadele tossed in to help round things out a bit and provide some more “mouthfeel”.
- Total acidity 0.60 g/100ml
- pH 3.15
- Alcohol 14.5%
- Blend 90% Semillon and 10% Muscadele
- Price $20
Nose: Nutmeg mixed with citrus fruits – a floral, lemon zest kind of component coming through.
Taste: Spicy lemons and limes coming on strong – mixed with some grapefruit rine and slighty tosted vanilla. Nice acidity but somewhat disjointed with a bit too much alcohol. This isn’t a bad wine per se, however there are far too many white wines in this price range which have a lot more kung-fu.
W.E.P. Rating: 60%
