Hans Herzog Arneis 2019

$55.00 inc. GST

93/100 – Bob Campbell MW (2017 vintage)

Tasting Note: Unapologetically full-bodied and complex, this vibrant Arneis doesn’t hold back. It captivates with typical aromas of pear and almond, showcasing its varietal character. Balanced acidity adds elegance to its concentrated profile, while a beautiful creamy texture envelops the palate. Impressively, it culminates in a long finish, a remarkable feat for a white wine without barrel aging. If you appreciate primary fruit aromas and delicate fragrance, we recommend savouring this wine in its youth to fully experience its vibrant character.

Winemaking Notes: “I initiated a brief cold soak (cold maceration) to extract the essence of the skins before allowing the must to undergo its natural (wild yeast) fermentation. Throughout the process, I diligently stirred the fine lees, contributing to the wine’s complexity and depth. Staying true to my hands-on approach in the vineyard and hands-off philosophy in the winery, this wine avoided cold stabilization, remained unfined, underwent only light filtration, and was left unoaked to preserve its delicate aromas. Any natural sediments that may appear serve as testimony to the high quality of this wine. Perfect in taste, naturally.” – Hans Herzog
