2018 Arneis


1 Critic Note
Product not in wishlist

Low stock - hurry!

Arneis (ah-nase) is an aromatic Italian white AKA ‘The Little Rascal’, because it can be a bit of a troublemaker in the vineyard. It’s bright and fragrant like a mountain breeze and as elegant as an Italian supermodel.

Region: Yarra Valley

Alc/Vol: 13%

Smells like: White peach, lemongrass and salted cashews 

Tastes like: Lemon blossom and nashi pear. Textural and mouth-watering with a fine, dry finish

Goes with: Italian fennel coleslaw, crab linguini, barbecued calamari. A motorboat on Lake Como


Wine making:

2018 Cool bud burst with warm dry finish to season allowed up to pick at perfect ripeness and quality.

• 100% Yarra Valley fruit
• Harvested in March 2018
• Destemmed and gently pressed
• 50% stainless steel fermentation to retain freshness
• 50% was fermented in mature French oak to build texture
• Six months of maturation and lees stirring
• Cellar up to five years, but why wait?


Critics’ tasting notes

  1. “A sassy wine of considerable herbal punch and refreshment factor. Notes of pear, white flower, green apple and apricot are strewn with hints of fresh hay, nettle and anise; all embedded across a spine of vibrant acidity.”
