Picked February 2013, The Arneis is pressed within 2 hours of harvest. The juice settles then it is racked after 36 hours. The wine is then fermented for 21 days and was then left on lees for 2 weeks before wine was racked again. The wine was then further fined, cold stabilised and bottled in July. Pale yellow straw colour, with an aromatic bouquet. Intense and rich palate with nutty overtones makes a wonderful full bodied wine.
Here is what Scoop Magazine had to say about the newly released 2013 Arneis
Vineyard 28 ‘The Alternative’ Arneis, Harvey 2013
Quality is on the rise in Geographe, particularly with alternative varietals.
Arneis is a textured, often white-spiced, nutty white grape variety from Piedmont, Italy.
Here in WA it delivers all that, with more peaches and mandarins, and plenty of freshness.
Drink by pool or sea.
