Wine of the Week AU

Rutherglen Estates Arneis 2017, Rutherglen, AUD $24

An absolutely delicious wine with scented pear aromas. Excellent palate weight. A small portion of the blend was aged in old oak, which contributes to the depth of the wine, as does lees stirring. Gently fruity with ripe lemon and white peach flavours. A very fine example of arneis. (Screwcap)
