Artigiano Grillo 2021
Artigiano is an exciting brand of artisan wines, made and imported by McLaren Vale’s Aramis Vineyards. Each wine is produced in consultation with Aramis’s own winemakers, with the sole aim of capturing the essence of classic Italian wine styles, using local varietals made in the traditional styles. Some are well-known and loved, such as our Veneto Pinot Grigio, while others may be a little left of centre (Sicilian Grillo, anyone?), but each of the wines shares two common features – vibrant, expressive flavours, and outstanding value for money.
Grillo, also known as Riddu and Rossese bianco, is a white Italian wine grape variety that withstands high temperatures and is widely used in Sicilian winemaking and, in particular, for making Marsala. Its origins are uncertain, but it may have been introduced into the island of Sicily from Apulia. Tropical aromatics with citrus, zingy acidity.
