Chardonnay 'Grand Cru' Terre Siciliane, Rapitalà

Chardonnay 'Grand Cru' Terre Siciliane, Rapitalà

Straight Chardonnay made from grapes grown in high vineyards, about 450 metres above sea level, where the altitude's cooling influence allows for a long ripening period when the grapes develop their flavour. Hand-harvested grapes are fermented in a mixture of stainless steel and oak barrels, with the young wine being matured in contact with its lees for about a year. Pale gold in colour, it shows rich, Sicilian fruit reminiscent of honeydew melon and tropical fruits like pineapple and greengage, with notes of vanilla and cream acquired from a period of oak ageing.
