LA ZONA 'Oro Dolce' Late Harvest Arneis 2018

TASTING NOTES
COLOUR: Pure Gold.
AROMA: Rich apricot nose mixed with tropical aromas of mango, jack fruit and lychee.
PALATE: Sweet syrupy texture with flavours of dried apricot, honey, and nougat. Flavours persist throughout the palate while bright acidity maintains poise without cloying.


WINEMAKING
"A small parcel of Arneis was left on the vine to continue to ripen, dehydrate, and develop Botrytis. The fruit was hand-harvested in late May with a mix of botrytis and raisoning averaging a °Bé of 19. Whole bunch pressed initially, the juice was returned to the press to soak with skins overnight to absorb more sugar and flavour. The juice is then fined and allowed to settle to clarify before racking. Fermentation in stainless steel tank and arrested at 11.5% alcohol. Settling and maturation over Winter and Spring before bottling.” Warren Proft, winemaker

Bottle Size: 375ml
