Moon Curser Contraband Series Arneis 2018

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMoon Curser's arneis has a really interesting nose of peach, orange peel, delicate petals, and pastry cream. The palate is expressive and complex with a nice mix of stonefruit (all parts: the skin, the pit, the flesh) and sticky herbs. Savoury with botanical fennel flavours, the midpalate is glycerol-creamy, the acid tetters in balance, and it ends on a rather hot note. With body, heft, and spirity warmth, this full figured, bone-dry arneis is far more ample than any Italian one I have tasted, and it's no surprize that innovative Moon Curser has planted BC's first arneis vines. Pair with savoury dishes like cacio e pepe, gnocchi with pesto, or nutty, aged cheese.Tasted: 06 November 2019Tasted by: DJ KearneyPrices: BC 22.99 select private wine shops, restaurants Producer: Moon CurserDistributors: BCWineshop
