Light yellow (hay colored), excellent clarity. Floral, stone fruit notes in nose with a hint of sulfur. Lemon, honey and nectarine flavors, good acidity, dry, almost crisp, mineral and leesy-lactic notes in finish, mild skin astringency. A nice dry white table wine.

Very floral with grapefruit and peach aromas, tropical fruit notes showing up on the mid palate. Delicate, polished and showing subtle spice and a slight nuttiness in texture. Very pretty wine with tons of class.

Needs time, but great bones for a polished, distinctive white.

Ok, it's old & a tiny bit oxidized, but only enough to add interest. After all, we like orange wine, right?

Arneis can be a great white variety if cropped well and carefully crafted. This steely wine also has lovely depth and the 2011 (under cork!) showed well, despite its age. This a great example of what Arneis can achieve.
