The second wine of father and son start-up Terrescure, Sìlei was named during the blending process when the Valianis struck on the perfect blend—”si lei” exclaimed the pair, “she is” (perfect)!
Predominantly Vermentino and Sauvignon Blanc (although we suspect there’s a bit of a field blend going on here), grapes are manually harvested in early September and vinified separately in temperature controlled stainless steel. Both wines are kept on the lees for three months before the blending process described above.
Elegant on the nose with a fine floral bouquet, there’s hints of pear, pineapple and stone-fruit that all come through on a beautifully weighted palate, rich and opulent whilst remaining refreshing and refined, with good length.
