Reviews: La Zona Arneis 2019 – 91 Silver
Halliday Wine Companion 2022 – Only free-run juice used, fermented cool in stainless steel, left on lees for 6 months. Boasts a gently savoury personality and textural quality that is quite compelling. Layers of almond, lemon, apple and fresh-cut pear here that is at once concentrated and intense. And, honeysuckle, too, lots of it. Together they roll and bring zest and life and texture to the grape. Jeni Port.
