WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE

Golden in colour reflecting the period of maceration on the skins of the Grecanico, this wine has attractive white peach and grapefruit aromas and flavours. The palate is fresh and flavoursome with lively acidity and distinct mineral notes from the volcanic soils.

ABOUT THE WINERY

 

Palmento Bianco wine is a field blend of organically grown, indigenous grapes from the north face of Mt Etna, Sicily. The grapes were hand harvested from different old bush vine vineyards over several days during the month of September. The Catarratto (50% of the blend) was whole bunch pressed immediately and fermented in stainless steel. So too were the mixed cassettes of Minnella Bianco, Carricante and Insolia (approximately 10% of the final blend). The Grecanico Dorato (40%) was macerated on skins for 8 days and then pressed and blended with the other fermenting musts. Alcoholic fermentation was spontaneous and without temperature control. The finished wine underwent malolactic fermentation and remained on light lees for 10 months before it was bottled without fining or filtration.
