What we say:
This is a fantastic wine and not just because it’s only £8.99!
Great for the summer either on its own or with food. The Grillo offers an alternative style of white wine and one that we find pleases many. It’s full intense flavour is bursting with green apple and fresh acidity, while the more tropical elements and soft smooth finish leave you not only wanting more but truly falling for this wine!
It’s the kind of wine you bring out for any occasion and it will get noticed for the right reason. Don’t over chill this wine to allow its full potential to show through. Just make sure you have the second one ready as well.
