Donnafugata Sur Sur Grillo Sicilia DOC

2018

In a Nutshell

Soft and fragrant Sicilian white.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant straw yellow in colour. On the nose, Sur Sur shows vibrant stone fruit, especially peach, combined with intriguing scents of wild flowers and cut grass. The palate is ripe and fragrant with fleshy peach fruit balanced by a zesty-fresh herbal finish. A fantastic vintage of this wine.

Production Notes

After gentle pressing, the must was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 14-16°C. After fermentation the wine aged for two months in tank and then at least three months in bottle before release.

Press Quotes & Awards

Loaded with fragrance, flavour and finesse, this savoury white pushes all the right buttons, starting with inviting aromas of tropical fruit, citrus and white spring flowers. The fresh, medium-bodied palate doles out honeydew, Meyer lemon and Mediterranean herb alongside crisp acidity and a hint of saline. 91 points.

Kerin O`Keefe The Enthusiast 100 Wines of 2019, Wine Enthusiast, 30th November 2019

Unoaked fresh fruity Grillo smelling of freshly mown meadows. It has such an attractive peachy, plummy, herby, honeyed, lemon-lime flavour with herby undertones – showing the Grillo grape at its best. Would suit anyone who loves aromatic fresh zippy whites.
