Wine Review: If you are looking for something different, check out this Arneis from Italy. It was well received by the Tasting Panel. It is almost clear colored and opens with a mild wet stone and gentle floral bouquet with hints of pineapple and orange blossom. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty gentle minerality and Anjou pear blend. We also detected some stone fruit and faint Golden Delicious apple. The finish is dry and pleasant. The panel suggested pairing it with broiled scallops. Enjoy - KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: Dark, straw-yellow colour. Intense, fine and elegantly fruity bouquet reminiscent of peach, apricot, citrus, fruit and acacia flowers. Fresh and fragrant flavour with soft plentifulness.
