Pale straw colour. A clean peach strike on the fresh and persistent bouquet with layers of ripe pear, honeysuckle and almonds. Dominant peach and grapefruit flavours with a hint of apple and a good mineral kick. The dry, pleasant palate is fresh and balanced by crisp acidity. Remarkable and delicate, with good complexity and a lingering finish.
Known as the "little rascal", Arneis is a small-berried Italian variety that originates in Piedmont. Arneis has a reputation as a troublesome grape amongst vinegrowers due to its erratic ripening habits and temperamental nature during fermentation. At its best, it produces vivid and complex peach, apricot and tangerine aromas with a delicious sweet sour texture on the palate. It makes deliciously fragrant whites, with a rich texture similar to grapes like Verdelho and Vermentino. The grapes for this wine are hand-picked and gently pressed. Fermentation in temperature regulated stainless steel vats for about 15 days at 18°C.
