Grillo is a grape variety native to Sicily which traditionally was used for the production of Marsala. It’s a late ripening varietal, typically grown on bush vines, and needs a warm to hot climate to prosper – it is therefore no surprise that it has thrived on the sundrenched hills of Sicily for over 2000 years. More recently its potential for creating refreshing dry whites bursting with flavour has come to the fore.
Brilliant pale straw colour with subtle flashes of green around the edges and a watery hue. Lifted ripe pear and dried honey aromas mix with hints of lime, fresh herbs and spice. Intense fleshy pear and lime fruits have a mouthfilling texture underpinned by crunchy green apple, infusions of fresh herbs, quince and wet slate. Finishes dry with crisp acidity and a long moreish aftertaste.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
