Chrismont’s contemporary winemaking melds with the King Valley family-run businesses focus on celebrating the traditions of their Italian heritage to produce wines that are as interesting as they are sensational.
The La Zona Arneis 2018 is a crisp white with the aroma of green apples, papaya, pear and citrus blossom. The palate is clean, with flavours of honeydew and green apples, brioche and with a bright, refreshing finish. Known in Italy as “the little rascal” Arneis has a reputation for being hard to grow, but it loves the cool climate of the King Valley.
Start your evening off with this lovely drop as an aperitif or pair with creamy pasta, seafood or light chicken dishes.

Halliday Wine Companion 2021 – It's zesty and fresh with white florals and lemon juice acidity zigzagging across the tight palate. Jeni Port.
