Moon Curser Arneis 2022

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaArneis is a somewhat rare white grape from Italy's Piedmont region, and in days passed, was blended with nebbiolo to soften the big red tannins of Barolo. Moon Curser Winery has successfully grown arneis on the Osoyoos East Bench in the Okanagan Valley in near complete obscurity. Arneis translates to little rascal, or troublemaker, in the Piemontese dialect, which refers to its problematic propensity to grow. Still, it hasn't stopped Moon Curser from releasing some terrific bottles led by the latest 2022 label. The nose is incredible, mineral and saline all in one, while the palate is awash with restrained yellow fruit and kiwi with just enough acidity to finish with vibrancy. My favourite match is roast chicken stuffed with mushrooms, but it is also a magical sushi wine.Tasted: 01 August 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
