93/100 – Bob Campbell MW (2017 vintage)
“Intense, powerful arneis with tree fruit, apricot, ripe apple, citrus and floral flavours, together with some toasty bottle development. A backbone of assertive acidity gives the wine a clean, mouth-tingling finish.” – Bob Campbell MW
Tasting Note: A refreshing and aromatic wine bursting with notes of tropical stone fruit and a refined lemon zest kick! Flavours of Williams’s pear sweep across the tongue and the balanced acidity make for an elegant and fresh finish. The definition of a summer wine! If you favour the primary fruit aromas and beautiful fragrance we suggest drinking this wine in its youth!
Winemaking Notes: “I left the fruit on a short cold soak (cold maceration) to extract all the goodness of the skins before I let the must progress to its natural (wild yeast) fermentation until no residual sugar was left. Its fine lees has been regularly stirred assisting to its complexity and depth. Keeping with my approach of hands-on in the vineyard but hands-off in the winery, this wine wasn’t exposed to cold stabilization, is unfined, only lightly filtrated and unoaked to retain the delicate aromas. Natural sediments may show and are testimony of this high quality wine. Perfect in taste, naturally.” – Hans Herzog
