Product Description

Down The Lane Pinot Grigio Arneis 2016  is Aromatic, firm and crisp palate with sweet-spiced Bosc pear flavours. Vaguely aromatic with freshly cut straw and nougat notes. Apperance of off white in colour with a hay straw. Vintage Conditions warmer temperatures and above average Winter/Spring rains made for an early budburst. A few loads of fruit beat the late January rains but things slowed up for a week until we dried out. Perfect dry conditions followed for the rest of vintage, with the added soil moisture keeping night time temperatures lower than usual. This allowed the fruit to retain fresh acid in whites and good colour/flavour in reds. 2016 will be remembered as one of the earliest and more compressed vintages on record with harvest over mid March.Three Italian varieties planted by the De Bortoli family were harvested together on the same day and into the same tank. Blend of Pinot Grigio, Arneis and Vermentino. The fruit of these 3 varieties were pressed together and the juice allowed to settle one day before racking to fermentation. Fermentation lasted nine days and the resulting wine left in this tank on lees for 9 months to let aromas and textures come together. Blend is 57% Pinot Grigio, 32% Arneis and 8% Vermentino. Works well with soft shell crab and seafoods.
