Our family has crafted wines in Sicily for over 160 years. SurSur is fresh and fruity with hints of aromatic herbs to match light dishes from vegetarian to seafood appetizers. Serve at 9-11C (48-52F).
With the Coronavirus likely putting our upcoming Sicilian vacation on hold, we decided to pop open a bottle from one of our favorite wineries, Donnafugata. The wine is made using the Grillo grape which is grown almost exclusively in Sicily and has long been used in the production of the island's fortified Marsala wines. Fortunately it also has a growing (and well-deserved) reputation for making some very enjoyable and affordable still table wines, which is exactly what we have here today.
The 2018 Donnafugata SurSur Grillo begins with a pleasing aroma of peach, melon, citrus, lemon and some lovely floral notes. The wine tastes fresh, fruity and delicious. Medium-bodied with a lovely soft texture, it has similar flavors to the nose with lots of depth, some nice herbal touches and good acidity. It ends with an excellent salty touch on the long, dry finish. Highly Recommended!
