Arneis is to the white as Nebbiolo is to the red on the hills of Piedmont in Northern Italy. The name in the local dialect translates to charming rascal. Sounds a lot like most Irishmen. The grapes for this wine came from the oldest Arneis planting in Australia. These vines which are more than 30 years old give a great intensity and complexity to the wine. Bottled 12th June 2018. Ascending waxing sickle moon in Gemini- Fruit day.
