Well made wine with good balance, clean taste, and nice hint of pear and apple like flavours throughout.
Arneis grapes are usually grown in the Alto Adige north-east alpine region of Italy. It is being grown in northern Victoria too. If this wine by Pizzini is anything to go by then quality and wine making had improved a lot. Gone are the acid-bombs arneis wine that I was drinking 10 years ago. Pizzini have got the acidity correct on this wine and so create a space where the other flavours speak for themselves.
Good with light tasting foods and to drink stand-alone while with friends. It’d be a pleasing change for the types of people that order a standard grigio or savvy b (Aussie slang for sauvignon blanc) at the bar, while also pleasing those that consider themselves more discriminating.
