2017 Arimia Verdelho
|Region||Margaret River, WA|
Established in 1998, Arimia made the move to organics in July 2016, is now completely free of any synthetic inputs and operates completely off the grid. All fertilisers in the vineyard are certified organic and winemaking has moved towards lower intervention. Arimia is on track to be fully certified organic in the vineyard and in the winery by July 2019.
|Wine||As a Mediterranean white variety, Verdelho is perfectly suited to the Margaret River region. It retains acid and produces wines of beautiful fruit sweetness and freshness. Grapes are hand-picked and whole bunch pressed to reduce oxidation and phenolic extraction. The wine is then settled and racked to stainless steel for ferment. Following ferment the wine is sulfured and then aged on lees for 4 - 5 months before bottling. Aromas of spiced pear, white flowers and citrus zest lead into a palate of green melon and ripe apples.|
|Tasting Note||Spiced pear - Green apples - Zesty|
