Tirsat IGT Gurra di Mare
Price per bottle 0,75l
A blend of Chardonnay and Viognier. The first wine of the new winery Gurra di Mare located in Porto Palo (Menfi), Sicily; a perfect terroir for the two international grape varieties. A golden yellow colour with an intense and complex nose that leads to apricot and yellow peaches aromas, white flowers, spices and honey. A sweet exotic intensity that combined with a pleasant freshness conveys in an harmonic wine.
Just under two hectares of Chardonnay and Viognier, on the terrains that descend all the way to the sea, in a unique micro-climate and surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Taking care of a vineyard in a terroir such as this demands a precise and extremely meticulous care. But the results can offer great satisfaction.
The only wine produced by Gurra di Mare is called Tirsat, which in Arabic means reef (it is no coincidence that the ancient name of Porto Palo was “Tirsat abi Tawr”). A name that pays homage to the character of a land that throughout the course of its history has served as a meeting point between different worlds and cultures. Tirsat is a blend of Chardonnay and Viognier grapes vinified based on the French “batonnage” technique (based on keeping the yeast cells in contact with the wine) to give life, in the lands made famous by the production of Planeta wines, to an elegant white with a fruity and very harmonious character.
