Are you Game? Arneis

- +

Pale straw.

Zesty lime and grapefruit meld with citrus blossom, hints of honey and tropical fruit.

A medium bodied yet refreshing wine, with green apple and fresh cut citrus balanced by a fruit forward palate creating lovely texture and length with a crisp finish.

The name Arneis means little rascal, but sometimes even little rascals behave! 2021 was a rare vintage where we had the unusual combination of higher yields and excellent quality and flavour. This was the best Arneis crop we have ever seen, with uncharacteristically uniform bunches and an even canopy.

Our Strathbogie Ranges Arneis shone this year. The grapes were crushed quickly after harvest to preserve the delicate fruit flavours. The wine was then fermented in stainless steel using a selected yeast to heighten aroma and contribute citrus flavours, and then kept on lees for 10 months to contribute richer texture and mouthfeel. A dash of Riesling (12.7%) added acidity, structure and clean, crisp citrus notes.
