Cortese, Vanedda Bianco 2020

Get to know: Cortese, Vanedda Bianco

Tasting Note

This rich and complex Sicilian white is made up of a blend of Grillo, Cataratto and Fiano.  On the palate it is wonderfully nuanced with layers of fruit and spice held together with well-integrated acidity. The flavours change with every sip: the bright colours of Sicilian summers, the bouquet of an orange or lemon grove, the sunny streets, with their aromas of herbs and spices. A wine that can take you on a journey or simply refresh you depending on your mood.

This goes very well with meat or fish dishes and is ideal with white meat dishes, with a honey reduction, perfectly.

Kate Says

"Trust me when I say you need to try this. I promise you it's a stunner. There's a blink and you miss it touch of skin contact and its aged in large Slovenian oak. There's so much going on in that wine but it's not showy like an oaky chard. I had it over 3 days and each day it was showing better than the day before."

Producer Info

Azienda Agricola Cortese is Sicilian biodiversity:  like all of their wines, Vanedda is organic and vegan, produced with the maximum respect for and protection of the environment. Awarded a gold medal by Drinks Business Magazine, Vanedda is the result of constant research, respecting the rhythms of nature, natural fermentation methods, rigour and quality.

The 100% organic grapes come only from their vineyards grown near Contrada Sabuci, in the Vittoria area of South East Sicily. The grapes are carefully hand-harvested into small baskets and only the best quality are selected. The wine is carefully de-stemmed and fermented on the skins for at least 2 days, after which they separate the wine from the skins and finish the fermentation in 30 hl oak botti. Following fermentation, the wine stays on the lees for at least 7 months and remains in bottle for a further 6 months before being released.
