A riot of tropical peach and pineapple aromas leap out of the glass. These flavours continue onto the palate joined by lovely ripe pear and a lick of lemony acidity to balance the ripe fruit and hint of almond on the finish.
Pairs well with seafood and summer salads.
"Sicily has a warm climate that helps the grapes ripen and develop juicy fruit flavours. This great value Cataratto is so aromatic and you can really taste lemon and peach and even a bit of passionfruit. Perfect with a pizza."
Palazzo del Mare's vineyard sites are situated at an altitude of 200-300m, ensuring cooler night time temperatures which preserve crucial acidity in the grapes. Yields are limited by the winds and the wines tend to be harvested earlier than many of their neighbours and consequently are bright and fresh. The Catarratto particularly displays that signature crisp, citrus laced fruit filled style. Fermented at 14C in stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks. left on the lees with occasional battonage enhance the texture and complexity of the wine. The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation in order to ensure it is bright, fresh and zippy.
This wine is suitable for consumption by Vegetarians.
