Arneis / Yarra Valley / Victoria
The Italians named the variety Arneis because it means little rascal, a difficult grape to manage in the vineyard and rarely cultivated in great amounts. Mostly it is used with Nebbiolo in the same way as Viognier is added to Shiraz, to soften the palate, to enhance and to pefume. Within Australia, usually grown to the cooler vineyards of Victoria, it has finally found it's niche as a pure varietal wine. YarraLoch make a tight and elegant style, offering restrained ripe lemon and herb notes up front, light and fresh on the palate, mineral and crisp.
