Regular readers will know of my fondness for native Italian white grape varieties. Grapes that almost became extinct in the Chardonnay era. This weekâ€™s â€˜must tryâ€™ is Grillo, a native of Sicily, which is loaded with summer appeal. Refreshing, exuberant and with just enough flavour to keep you interested. Think bottled spring day, and wonâ€™t that feel great when we get into the hot and sultry season.
