La Bise Adelaide Hills Arneis 2016

An Arneis from the Adelaide Hills. Winemaker Natasha Mooney has created a cool, seductive and elegant wine from fruit grown at the Amadio vineyard in Kersbrook. 300 cases made. 

Mooney's brand La Bise (The Kiss en francais) aims to breathe the "kiss of life" into vineyards requiring that extra t l c. The brand also stamps her personal touch with wines that she considers "unconventional", "thought provoking" and "offer an alternative without the intimidation" to drinkers.

Alluring pale gold in colour.
Rich with scented florals, citrus and almond aromas on the nose with some apples and herbal notes 
Apple, peach, ripe pear and almond flavours follow onto the long palate that is mid-weight and well-balanced.

The mouth-watering lemon acidity and slatey mineral charm give this wine a fresh, clean and dry mouthfeel. 
No "intimidation" here, this is an Arneis spot on for personality and drinkability.
