Cortese Vanedda Bianco Terre Siciliane 2016
An eclectic blend of classic Sicilian grape varieties, inspired by ancient winemaking and made with modern talent - 91pts, Decanter
A blend of Cataratto and Grillo. 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.
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.
