This bottling is 100% Arneis, which translates to English as "little rascal"as it can be quite finicky to grow. Evan Lewandowski only makes this wine in about 50% vintages when the stars seem to align and the perfect balance of ripeness can be achieved. This vintage definitely worked in his favor and by allowing the juice to oxidize a bit after pressing, the result is a rich, amber colored, complex wine. Notes of juicy tangerine, almonds, and white flowers explode on the nose and palate. The texture is lush with a textural quality from the lack of filtering. As there is plenty of sediment in this bottle, I recommend letting it settle (preferably while slightly chilling) upright and either decanting or pouring slowly from the bottle. This makes for an excellent pairing for a cheese plate with briney pickles and salted nuts. Michelle DeWyngaert
