Catherine Vale 2013 Arneis

Hunter Valley NSW | 10.2 per cent alcohol | $20

Arneis is a native grape variety of the north-western Italian region of Piedmont and I see it as a gentler, just-as-aromatic but less pungent alternative to sauvignon blanc.

This is a well priced Hunter Valley example to test out.

I suggest trying it with grilled bream and Asian greens, or with pan-fried prawns in a gingery coriander-based sauce.
