This is the ultimate summer cleanser. Forget your G&T, this Arneis from the cool climbs of the Adelaide Hills will quench and refresh. Citrus and lime zest with a hint of nashi pear and minerality.
But this wine isn’t just an aperitivo tease. Its purity of fruit, zippy persistence, and finely textured finish make it the ‘perfect match’ for a feast of dishes. You’ll love it….we love it!

2011 was a game-changing vintage across south-eastern Australia, a tough, cool season that worked magic with some vineyards. Bella Coppia is cooler, calmer and fresher than ever, a wine of dazzling acidity and mouthfilling texture. Crunchy lemons, grapefruit zest, a hint of almost ripe honeydew and a varietal note of dried grass are all part of the parade here, making for a perfect match with sushi and sashimi. This could just be the finest First Drop Arneis yet. Rating 93 - Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste Weekly (JUL/2012)
Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw, with tinges of green
Nashi pear and passionfruit, with a hint of lime
Nashi pear and pithy fruit flavours dominate, with lime zest and minerality, making the palate long and zingy. Some say Sauvignon Blanc, some say Pinot Grigio, I say Arneis!
