Dal Zotto Arneis (King Valley, VIC)

Dalz Otto 2015 Arneis King ValleyHave you tried a wine made from the Arneis grape variety?

Arneis is a white grape that originally comes from Italy. In the language of Piedmontese it translates to ‘little rascal’ because it can be difficult to grow. When successfully grown, however, it can produce a crisp and floral white wine.

The Italian Dal Zotto family in the King Valley (VIC) produced this bottle of 2015 Arneis which I picked up for about $20.

I found it a silver-yellow colour in the glass with vibrant scents of herbs and ripe fruits. Those herbs carried onto the palate mixing with spiced lemon and grapefruit citrus. I can see why they recommend it to match pasta as it’d cut through all those delicious carbs with ease to make it a totally balanced meal.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
