LA ZONA Arneis 2022

LA ZONA Arneis 2022

Known in Italy as the "little rascal", Arneis is traditionally hard to grow but not in the King Valley where it flourishes from the regions open blue skies and pristine cool climate.

TASTING NOTES
COLOUR: Very pale straw with subtle green hues. 
AROMA: Lifted apple, pear and pawpaw aromas with a touch of citrus blossom. 
PALATE: Crisp acidity with flavours of honeydew and pineapple, and a bright, refreshing finish. 

WINEMAKER NOTES
“Fruit was harvested late in the season when green apple flavours were evident and the acidity adequately reduced, then pressed gently with only the delicate free run juice being used. The juice is then settled to clarify before being fermented cool in stainless steel to help preserve the fruit’s flavours. A short maturation period on lees during autumn and winter helped develop the flavours before a spring bottling.” Warren Proft, winemaker 

FOOD PAIRING
Scallops served with a cauliflower and walnut puree and shaved KingValley truffles. Chrismont Restaurant, Winter menu, 2022.
