Graffetta Grillo 2018
$35.00 inc. GST
“Aromas suggesting crushed tomato leaf, citrus and exotic fruit leap out of the glass. On the medium-bodied palate, tangy acidity perks up juicy grapefruit, white peach and pineapple packed in syrup.” – Wine Enthusiast
Tasting Note: Over the years and while managing our own vineyards, we got the opportunity to run other vineyards in the area of Segesta. Located at 600m above sea level, these vineyards are more suitable for the production of white grapes, such as the native Grillo. These 4ha of vineyards have high mineral/fossil content, with an east-west aspect of sun exposure. Straw-yellow colour, this Grillo reveals delicate yet complex aromas of dried flowers, hay, and straw. On the palate, it displays a warm, fully Mediterranean profile, which at the same time is balanced by its freshness and acidity.
Winemaking Notes: Fermented under controlled temperature of 28ºC for 10-12 days. Malolactic Fermentation completed in stainless steel tanks, and the wine was aged in stainless steel, followed by at least 3 months in bottle. 12,000 bottles/year annual production.
Region: Segesta, Sicily, Italy
