2020 Bird in Hand Arneis

Regular price AU $29.00

The Adelaide Hills is renowned for producing some of Australia’s finest aromatic white varietals and this Arneis grape, originating from Italy is a relative newcomer to South Australia

The grapes were harvested in the cool of night and delivered immediately to the winery, where they were crushed, destemmed and pressed. A small portion (10%) of the juice directly transferred to French oak barrels, while the remainder was chilled and underwent a slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks to maintain lively characters and varietal definition.

In appearance, the wine is reminiscent of pale quartz and on the nose has aromas of nashi pear, kiwi and quince characters. A supple and delicate mouthfeel, the palate shows generous fruit weight balanced by natural acidity, complemented by the structure and length the oak component provides.

This alternative Italian variety is a good match for Mediterranean cuisine such as Italian stuffed capsicum or a simple risotto.

This special bottle was created by acclaimed Australian fashion designer Dion Lee.

This wine is vegan friendly.
