Pinocchio Arneis 2013
King Yarra Mornington
Garry and Rollo Crittenden are dedicated vignerons who channel their efforts into producing small batches of fine wine. Arneis is a rare varietal originating from Piedmonte in northwest Italy which came close to extinction. Crittenden was the first commercially released Arneis made in the southern hemisphere. A backbone of fruit is sourced from good vineyards in the King Valley which is a region endowed with a climate almost identical to Piedmont. An addition from Crittenden's site in Mornington contributes vibrant fruit characters and aromatics.

Sourced from fine vineyards under contract in King Valley, the remainder from the Crittenden property at Dromana, all parcels are picked by hand. Grapes are transported to the Crittenden wineworks where they are processed as whole bunches through an airbag press. Juices are settled without enzymes for twenty four hours and racked to controlled fermenters. Vinifications are limited to moderate temperatures of 16C for up to three weeks until batches are completely dry. The fermented wine then spends some time in tank on lees to impart texture and infuse complexity. Treated to a term of age unoaked and without any malolactic, Pinocchio is filtered after a few months and made ready for bottling.
 
Pale straw hue. True to the Piedmontese style, Pinocchio shows characters of pear, stonefruits and fresh apple on the nose. Crisp and fresh with a mouthfilling palate of juicy acidity, flavours of peaches and pear, mineral and flint with a crunchy dry finish. To be enjoyed in its youth, Arneis really comes into its own with good food, particularly with authentic Italiano such as cuttlefish or white bait.
Pizzini Arneis
King Valley
Available by the dozen
Pizzini delight in the diversity of Italian varietal wines, grown to the idyllic microclimes of Victoria's Alps. Alfred Pizzini pioneered Arneis in the King Valley after establishing that the area was so very highly suited to Italian white wine grapes. Viticulture here is a highly specialized affair which requires skillful clonal planting regimes and vine trellising techniques. Old world tradition and new world skill achieve a fresh, crisp Arneis wine with lingering flavours of green apple, nashi pears and tropical fruits, a good match with crisp skin chicken or ripe hard cheese.

The Pizzinis established their property as a tobacco farm before being encouraged by Brown Brothers of Milawa to grow wine grapes. The Pizzini property is now planted to vines on the gentle undulating slopes of King Valley and lower down on the second terrace flats leading to King River. The vineyard enjoys a well drained north easterly aspect with red volcanic soils containing a high level of decaying basalt on the slopes and gravely, sandy clay loam soils on the second terrace. The aim at Pizzinni is to strike the perfect balance between healthy, sustainable viticulture and controlled yields, so that the vineyard is better able to produce quality fruit with a concentration of flavour, translating into balanced, mouthfilling wines.
 
Bright green tinged yellow in the glass. Aromatics of green apples and lime, spices and white petalled flowers jump from the glass. Plenty of mountain fresh fragrance with fresh cut yellow pear fruits, the merest hints of citrus and fresh almond. The palate's crisp, dry and fresh, really bracing yet gentle, with pear and apple flavour sitting bright and crunchy from start to mouth watering finish.

Fruit is harvested at healthy levels of complete ripeness, brimming with a fine concentration of esters and ideal acidity. Bunches are picked into small packing cases and delivered to the winery, softly pressed and cold settled at cool temperatures to separate juice form gross solids. The musts are vinified at moderate temperatures around 18┬░C over the course of a fortnight, followed by several months maturation.
 
Straw yellow, greenish hues. Intense floral and fruity aromas, almond and white pommes characters over a background of fine mineral crispness. A lengthy, well structured palate of drying fruit flavours, its astringency kept in check by apple and kernel notes, all supported by balanced acidity and culminating in a long, crystalline, savoury finish.
YarraLoch Arneis
Yarra Valley
Available by the dozen
The Italians named the variety Arneis because it means little rascal, a difficult grape to manage in the vineyard and rarely cultivated in great amounts. Mostly it is used with Nebbiolo in the same way as Viognier is added to Shiraz, to soften the palate, to enhance and to pefume. Within Australia, usually grown to the cooler vineyards of Victoria, it has finally found it's niche as a pure varietal wine. YarraLoch make a tight and elegant style, offering restrained ripe lemon and herb notes up front, light and fresh on the palate, mineral and crisp.

It can successfully be argued that nobody knows fine wine like investment bankers, YarraLoch's Stephen Wood is a case in point. He intuitively understood that unique microclimes are suited to different wine grapes and established his operations astride three unique sub regions of the Yarra Valley. Unashamedly inspired by the great wines of Europe, the singular focus of YarraLoch is to create world class Yarra Valley wines which are distinguished by their elegance, balance and complexity. Arneis is vinified through a mix of wild indigenous barrel ferments and inoculated tank components, a portion remains on oak for six months to balance the naturally high acid levels and promote palate richness.
 
Light straw hue. Tight and elegant, showing restrained ripe lemon and hints of herb. Traditionally fresh, bright and fruity with characters of pear, apple and almond. The palate is light, fresh, crisp and minerally. It has flavours of lemon, green apple and herbs with crisp steely acid and a dry finish. A sophisticated alternative to simpler, more popular table whites, ideal with oysters, fresh seafood, olives and antipasto.
