K1 by the Hardys Arneis 2011

Arneis hails from Italy's Piedmont (literally 'foot of the mountain' region), abutting the Alps in the North-West of the country.  As a variety it was almost in danger of dying out in the post-war period, until rescued by producer Vietti in the 1970s.

White peach, subtle apricot, hints of almond.  Elegantly fragrant is how it is best described - hints of spring meadow with the associated freshness of an Alpine stream.  Citrus tinged on the palate, more than that, it has a lemon freshness imbued with a little sea air.  Good phenolics add to the package, adding a little shape, flow and feel.  90 - Good
