LA ZONA Arneis 2017
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.
COLOUR: Pale straw with pale green hues.
AROMA: Floral aromas with melon and fresh apple.
PALATE: Fresh clean apple flavour with a crisp and zippy acidity, finishing dry and effervescent.
“The fruit is harvested when it displays hints of melon and apple, low potential alcohol, and a crisp natural acidity. It is then pressed with the juice left to settle and clarify before being fermented cool in stainless steel to help preserve fruit flavours. The wine is then blended with prosecco reserve wines to add complexity and to help maintain our house style. The secondary fermentation takes place in pressure tanks to naturally carbonate the wine before it is bottled under pressure.“ Warren Proft, winemaker
Perfectly paired with freshly shucked oysters.
