Gold in colour, very aromatic; lemon, apricot, peach, pineapple, orange, baked pear, sea spray, chalky minerality, citrus blossom and roasted pistachio. Saline minerality glosses pineapple, apricot, nectarine, lemon, blood orange, white flowers and candied ginger. Fresh acidity and light, green tea tannins compliment orange zest, pink grapefruit, honey, a trace of clove and roasted nuts on the finish. Creamy and bright.

‘SP68’ Terre Siciliane IGT Bianco is a still, dry white wine made by Arianna Occhipinti in Italy’s Sicilia.
Grape(s): Moscato di Alessandria, Albarello
Bottle size & closure: 750ml, Cork
Delicate, pale yellow with some sediment (the wine is unfiltered).
Notes of white flowers, pink grapefruit, lychee, fresh oregano, and spice.
Surprisingly light on the palate. Firm but gentle acidity. There’s some maceration on the skins, which gives a little tannin on the finish, along with an intriguing olive note.
