The Cortese white wine variety originated in the Italian region of Piedmont. Little of this variety is grown elsewhere.
In the Piedmont Region Cortese is made into white wines of variable quality. Many are rather bland but quite acidic, eminently suitable as house wines in seafood restaurants. At the other end of the scale, Cortese wines can be lightly aromatic with attractive textural mouthfeel. The most famous (and expensive) examples are from the DOCG region of Gavi.
This variety is still quite rare in Australia, probably because it is being squeezed out by other Italian white wine varieties. The few producers who have pioneered the variety have made some impressive wines so Cortese may have a future here.
