Rutherglen Estates [Vic], Single Vineyard Arneis 2017

Marc Scalzo, wearing his other hat as Chief Winemaker at Rutherglen Estates, has successfully developed & promoted a range of European varietals from their NE Vic vineyards.
Hence this already multi trophied typically New World version of the Italian Arneis grape.
If offers a freshly delicate combination of primary fruit in the pear / quince spectrum.
There are also wafts of spice and floralness.
This well-deserved current Trophy winner offers warmth [13.8% Alc], length and richness.
It follows on from the previous awarded vintages. An ideal summer wine.
Price: $24
