Brown Brothers Cellar Door Release Arneis 2017
We’ve only just released the Brown Brothers Cellar Door Release Arneis 2017 (pronounced ahr-NASE) and it’s already collecting medals. The wine won silver at both the 2017 Alternative Wine Show and 2017 Victorian Wine Show.
This grape variety originally comes from the Northern area of Italy known as Piedmont. We developed the wine in the Kindergarden winery with grapes from the Yarra Valley. To give the wine mouthfeel and texture, 70% of the juice was barrel fermented in old oak. Some lees were also add to help create the brilliant texture to this wine.
The wine shows a nose of white blossom and a hint of white peach. Lemon pith and stone fruit fill the palate. A great match with grilled seafood in summer.

Brown Brothers Cellar Door Release Albariño 2017
Brown Brothers has a history of making Spanish varieties, most notably Tempranillo and Graciano and it is very exciting to have another join our portfolio.
We grew the grapes from the Brown Brothers Cellar Door Release Albariño 2017 (pronounced Ahl-bah-reen-yo) at our Banksdale vineyard in the King Valley where the cool climate allows for slow accumulation of flavour while retaining crisp acid.
It is a floral, perfumed wine with a medium bodied, textured palate meaning it is the ideal accompaniment to a wide variety of foods.
So, do as the Spanish do – grab a bottle and enjoy with some seafood or tapas.
