VINEYARD DESCRIPTION

This 'little rascal' (the Italian translation of Arneis so called due to its difficulty to cultivate) is an old and very rare Italian variety originating from the Northern Piedmont region. This unique wine was produced from three different vineyard sites between Hawkes Bay and Gisborne, grown on free draining soils comprised of silt and sand. The vines were cropped low, allowing ripe flavours to fully develop in the fruit.

WINEMAKER’S COMMENT

The nose of this wine is intense and freshly scented with an array of citrus, almond and honeysuckle characters. An approachable palate follows through leading to a delicate and dry styled finish with pleasing length.

SERVING SUGGESTION

Ideally suited as an apéritif or served with fresh seafood, chicken or white meat. A fantastic alternative to Sauvignon Blanc, its moderate alcohol and approachable style make it a great food wine.
