Pale straw. Passion fruit and herbal nuances, plus a strong white peach element on the very fragrant, almost aromatic nose: this reminded me a little of Zibibbo (Muscat of Alexandria). Fresh and saline in the mouth, showing sneaky concentration to the apple, fresh citrus and herb flavors. Long and clean, this is a lovely wine that strikes me as much more interesting than any SurSur made before it (though I’m not wild about this vintage’s Zibibbo-like note). This is a relatively new wine for Donnafugata: the first vintage of SurSur was 2012. The estate currently rents the vineyard from which this wine is made, but it has moved to plant new Grillo vineyards and will soon switch to estate fruit. Antonio Rallo believes that Grillo has lots of potential, “like a Pinot Grigio but with a Sicilian minerality.” Sursur is the Arabic name for Grillo. Drinking window: 2016 – 2017. (Ian d’Agata)
