Cortese, a long-running organic wine growing estate in southern Sicily that has been given a new lease of life under fresh ownership.

This is a surprising and serious style from Sicily. It's made from an organic field blend of Catarratto and Grillo, co-fermented on their skins in old 30-litre Slavonian oak botti to add structure and phenolics.

"A surprising and serious style from Sicily that's reminiscent of a southern Chablis. It's made from an organic field blend of Catarratto and Grillo, co-fermented on their skins in old 30-litre Slavonian oak botti to add structure and phenolics. Fresh, tropical-tinged aromas leap from the glass, and there's a beautiful richness on the palate, which boasts depth and structure underpinned by clean, crisp acidity and a touch of spice." 91 Points, Decanter Magazine
