Opening with attractive floral aromatic notes, green apples and pears, Chrismont's 2015 LA ZONA Arneis, delights with a palate full of crisp Granny Smith apples, pears and notes of peaches, lingering with a creamed honey finish.
“Fruit is harvested late in the season when green apple flavours are evident and
the acidity has adequately reduced. It is then pressed gently with only the
delicate free run juice being used, which is settled to clarify before being
fermented cool in stainless steel to help preserve fruit flavours. A short
maturation period on lees during autumn and winter helps to develop the flavours
of the wine before it is prepared for bottling in spring.” Warren Proft, winemaker
Food Pairing Notes
A superb aperitif or pair it with golden pan-fried fish and lemon dill sauce, or grilled garlic and chilli prawns.
