Three Fates Arneis 2023


What a great way to discover what the northern Italian grape variety Arneis is all about - freshness and minerality. There’s some pretty aromatics and gentle, creamy texture, but its the taut, driven nature of this that we love. Fresh oysters, a squeeze of lemon juice, and a glass or two of this….. chefs kiss.

The three fates are Holly Girven Russell, Hester Nesbitt and Casey Motley. In another case of old mate COVID causing a change of tack, these three decided to combine their respective wine growing experience, taking on the lease of a Maraekākaho, Hawkes Bay vineyard in 2020. It’s a trio of things we love here at BTB - talented people going out on their own, alternative grape varieties, and wines that are thoughtful, modern expressions of great New Zealand wine regions.
