The Arneis grape is indigenous to Piemonte in North-West Italy. Its name means Little Rascal in the local dialect. At bottling the wine was very pale with light green tints. With time we expect that it will develop some pale gold hints. Like a Chameleon! Sometimes it's lemons and grapefruit, then it's marmalade, then it's peachy and sometimes a hint of feijoa is lobbed in. Surprisingly rich, full and textural. The stonefruit character fills and the mid palate and gives the wine length and breadth. The wine makers states "We dont believe that Arneis is a wine for the cellar. Our experience with Arneis from other countries indicates that it is best in its youth. A full bodied, dry white wine rich in stone fruit character. Perfect with seafood and salads and best enjoyed young".
