If Muscat can sometimes be a “girly girl” then Arneis is definitely a “Tomboy”...
Première Price: $26.25
Hawthorn flowers, ripe pears and hops on the nose. On the palate the wine is dry but smooth, with strong body and a distinct character.
Arneis originated in Piedmont, Italy and can be traced back to the 14th century. The grape has been rescued from the verge of extinction and is now enjoying something of a revival, surging in popularity in Sonoma County and the Willamette Valley. The ideal conditions of our estate vineyards where this Arneis is farmed express well in the glass with fresh & clean floral aromatics, dry and refreshing mouthfeel, and an elegant finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this wine with a spring vegetable risotto with asparagus, zucchini flowers and pan fried prawns.
