Konpira Maru Ballad of Boggy Creek Arneis 2021 Victoria
When one thinks of the great waterways of the world, the mind conjures up such rivers as the Nile and the Amazon. No one ever thinks of Boggy Creek. Yet this unassuming tributary of the King River has sprung a gold seam, with the beautiful Cavicchiolo vineyard sitting either side of its banks. It's here that Konpira Maru were lucky enough to secure a small parcel of arneis, a Piedmontese grape that made its way to Australia with the first Italian immigrants. The wine has a subtle yet grippy tannin, and flavours of Granny Smith apple and green almond.
