2020 Arneis


1 Critic Note
Product not in wishlist

In stock

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: 11.5%

Smells like: White peach, lemongrass and salted cashews 

Tastes like: Lemon blossom, nashi pear and nectarine. 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:

Low yielding vintage due to a wet spring and then warm to moderate summer delivering complex flavours.

• 100% Yarra Valley fruit
• Harvested in March 2020
• Destemmed and gently pressed
• 80% stainless steel fermentation to retain freshness
• 20% was fermented in mature French oak to build texture
• Six months of maturation and lees stirring
• Cellar up to four years


Critics’ tasting notes

  1. “Love this variety. This is a beauty from the Yarra. A small amount of barrel fermentation has added immeasurably to the palate, providing complexity and textural feel. Light citrus and nutty characters. Has a crisp, long finish.”
