Grillo Viognier Terre Siciliane IGP 2014 Santa Tresa

TRES025
The Santa Tresa winery sits proud on a rocky slope that looks out over the azure Meditteranean - arguably the most beautiful view of any winery in Europe. This equal blend of racy crisp local grillo grapes and the richer, more fruity character of French Viogner makes an interesitng and high quality dry white, with the added benefit of a few months in oak to add vanilla and butter notes.

Santa Tresa

One of Sicily’s oldest and finest wineries, producing top quality, indigenous varietal wines from Vittoria. In perfect harmony with nature and with ideal grape-growing weather conditions, Feudo di Santa Tresa’s vineyards benefit from the Sicilian sun and cooling sea breezes, far enough away from the sea. Here, we are able to produce organic wines with the ultimate expression of our grape varietals and the soul of Sicilian character. Considerable replanting and upgrading on the 50 hectares “terra rossa” vineyards, alongside the highest quality winemaking, results in exceptional wines.

Tasting Notes

Nice colour, rich, forward nose of apricot, citrus and floral characters. The palate continues in the same vein, with apricot peach and vanilla flavours supported by crisp steely acidity and a distinct freshness.

Food Matches

Enjoy with roast chicken, baked fish or clams and spaghetti vongole.
