Floral and fruity

Casa d’Ambra Frassitelli Ischia Bianco DOC 2017, Campania, AUD $45

This special wine is made from the local biancolella grape, grown on the precipitous island of Ischia in the Bay of Naples. The floral aromatics are reminiscent of pinot gris. The wine is fruity and smoothly-textured, with a trace of sweetness and a clean finish. (Cork)
