Harvested by hand and whole cluster pressed by foot, our first Arneis was harvested from Yolo County’s unique sandy soil much like its home in Piedmont. A slow stainless fermentation and six months on lees without oak keeps it pure. Medium bodied with medium acid, simple yet complex, rich in pear and honey and a little dried apricot with a slight touch of almond and anise and that peculiar straw scent Arneis is famous for.
Food Pairings for Arneis
The wine is a simple and enjoyable Italian dessert style of wine that has a wonderful aroma of pear, straw and apricot on the nose. In the mouth is a medium bodied moderately crisp wine with flavors of pear, honey, Macadamia nuts, and apricot preserves. Beautiful golden color and a very smooth finish.
