Fox Hill Vineyard, Mendocino, California
Vinous 89-90 points!
Planted in the Fox Hill Vineyard in Mendocino this is a rare gem from California. The plantings were inspired by the owner, Lwell Stone who decided to follow his passion and plant what he was most interested in. Many trips to Italy turned to inspiration and the wild spectrum of varieties began to take root. The Arneis is planted in nutrient poor soils giving the vines beautfiul natural balance.
"The 2016 Arneis Fox Hill Vineyard is laced with the essence of apricot, peach, spice and floral notes. This is a bit richer and bigger than most Italian versions, but all the elements are impeccably balanced."--Vinous, 89-90 points!
