Tasting Notes

Colour: At bottling the wine was very pale with light green tints. With time we expect that it will develop some pale gold hints.
Bouquet: 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.
Palate: Surprisingly rich, full and textural. The stonefruit character fills and the mid palate and gives the wine length and breadth.

The Arneis grape is indigenous to Piemonte in North-West Italy. Its name literally translates to ‘Little Rascal’ in the local dialect which describes very well just how difficult this grape is to grow and vinify. Thankfully, in 2015, Mother Nature was in a good mood and Arneis was too. This allowed us to harvest fruit from Doug and Delwyn Bell’s vineyard in delightful condition. The fruit was hand-picked, chilled and trucked to Auckland. It was then whole bunch pressed and tank fermented to allow us to retain all of Arneis’s juicy goodness.

“Delicately scented, with good weight, generous, citrusy, slightly peachy and spicy flavours, fresh acidity and a lingering finish. Strongly varietal, highly drinkable wine, enjoyed by all judges.”
