Grillo Bianco Terre di Sicilia
Blend: 100% Grillo
From: Italy, Sicily
By: Alana McGettigan @ Cento Cavalli
This classic Italian dry white wine is a great value option for weeknight drinking. Made on the volcanic island of Sicily, it is erupting with flavours of zesty lime, lemon and fresh herbs, with a racy acidity.
The vineyard where the grapes are sourced is located on rolling hills in western Sicily, where the terra rossa soils and cooling sea breezes make an excellent home for syrah.
The grapes were fermented in stainless steel before going through a secondary malolactic fermentation, and were then aged in stainless steel in order to preserve the vibrancy of the fruit.
Syrah is not Sicily’s most widespread grape variety, but this wine shows that there is a lot of potential for the variety on the sunny volcanic island.
