Wine Review: This white gold colored Grillo is an impressive summer wine. It opens with a very fragrant Honeydew melon and lemon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a very tasty mineral infused tangerine and pineapple blend with notes Anjou pear and lime. The finish is dry and very refreshing. This wine would be perfect with a grilled swordfish steak with a lemon butter drizzle. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Brilliant straw yellow, on the nose SurSur 2016 offers a fresh bouquet with fruity notes of white peaches combined with scents of elderflowers and rosemary. A soft palate, the fruity notes return combined with pleasant freshness. To be enjoyed within 3 years. Enjoy with friends. We recommend it as an aperitif or at your gourmet picnics. It matches perfectly with seafood appetizers, vegetarian first courses or with fish.
