2017 La Gita Arneis
Seductive citrus blossom, spiced pear and smoked almond aromas dominate. The palate is rich and rounded in flavour with a lovely balance and line, finishing with vibrant freshness.
The grapes were grown at the Peters Creek Road Vineyard in Kangarilla. This vineyard sits at an altitude of 330 meters above sea level which ensures warm days but more importantly cool nights. The cool evenings are ideal for growing Arneis as this slows sugar ripening and helps retain natural flavours and acidity.
Hand harvested at full flavour ripeness and then gently whole-bunch pressed straight to large seasoned-oak barrels. The wine on full press-solids was allowed to naturally ferment to sugar dryness. Post fermentation the wine was left on ferment yeast lees for four months prior to being naturally clarified and bottled.
