Dal Zotto Arneis 2019
100% Arneis from King Valley, VIC
Aroma: Honeysuckle + Yellow Peach
Palate: Lemon Zest + Fresh Ginger
Otto and Elena Dal Zotto established Dal Zotto Estate in 1987. Back then it was a small vineyard producing Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. These days the family vineyard holdings run close to 200 acres with sons Michael as winemaker and Christian handling sales and marketing. Whilst Dal Zotto focuses heavily on Prosecco, they also have a wide selection of other Italian grape varietals from classic expressions of Pinot Grigio to lesser known varietals such as Garganega and Arneis. This expression of Arneis, a white grape variety originating from Piedmont in Italy, smells of a spring garden with honeysuckle and yellow peach; it’s more aromatic than the variety usually dictates. The palate is bright with light fruity flavours, citrus and a spicy bite.
