Moon Curser Arneis 2021

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaArneis is a somewhat rare white variety from Italy's Piedmont region. In days gone by, it blended with Barolo's nebbiolo to soften the big red's tannins. Moon Curser has released several quality versions of its Osoyoos East Bench Arneis, and 2021 is another. Arneis translates to "little rascal" in the Piemontese dialect, which refers to its problematic propensity to grow. It has a youthful nose with yellow fruit and flowers pushing to the forefront. On the palate, kiwi, pink grapefruit, and apricots all rush in with just enough acidity to balance the equation. I think roasted chicken is the match, or decadent creamy seafood dishes. The alcohol is now at a moderate 13.9, adding to its charm.Tasted: 17 July 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
