Grillo is a variety that will not be familiar to many winelovers. This hardy Italian white thrives in Sicily where it handles the high temperatures with ease (perhaps it will be given a shot locally – there are actually around half a dozen local producers, though mostly in the cooler Adelaide Hills). It is used either in the making of Marsala or as a dry white wine, which on occasion is blended with Chardonnay. This one is all Grillo and rather exciting. Pale yellow, this is fresh and medium bodied at best. We have floral notes, notably frangipani blossoms, grapefruit pith, pears, orange rind notes and a minerally backing. Good intensity throughout, this is a wine that flows well, with focus. There is a seductive texture here and very good length. Drink now and up to the next five to six years. Lots to like in what would be a delicious wine with your next seafood feast.90 pts - Patrick Eckel (Wine Reviewer)
Lemon zest, dry honey and background notes of lime frame what is such an interesting nose. There is a saline and honeyed note to ripe lemon with a build of grapefruit like bitterness that aligns with the wines texture and flow. The finish is steeped in grapefruit with apple blossom and enough citrus fruits to provide contrast. A really interesting drink.
