Terrazze dell’Etna Ciuri Bianco

2013

In a Nutshell

An intriguing white made from predominantly white grapes

Tasting Notes

Light straw yellow in colour with great clarity and green reflections. Fresh and fragrant with notes of tropical fruit and a hint of rosemary. On the palate it is fresh, well balanced with an acidic backbone and attractive mineral finish.

Production Notes

The grapes were hand harvested. After a gentle pressing, the must was left to settle for a couple of days before it was racked into stainless steel vats. Fermentation then took place at a cool temperature. Cryo-maceration, a process used in white wine production to extract more flavour and aroma compounds from the grapes followed. The process involves keeping the skins and the crushed grapes in contact at extremely low temperature prior to fermentation. The wine was then aged in steel and then in bottle before release.
