Arbane

Arbane: Grape Colour, Aromas and Taste Profile: Arbane is an old white wine variety from the Aude département of France, which produces light-bodied wines with delicate aromas and flavours. The grape produces wines with citrusy and floral aromas, as well as notes of green apple, white peach and honey. On the palate, the wine is dry and crisp, with a zesty acidity and a delicate finish. Where is it Grown: Arbane is one of the 7 registered grape varieties allowed in the Champagne region of France. Viticulture and Winemaking: Arbane is an early budding, late-ripening variety, and is usually harvested in mid-September. Springfrost might be an issue. The grapes are usually picked at low sugar levels in order to achieve a dry, crisp and light-bodied wine. The wine is typically vinified in stainless steel tanks, in order to preserve the delicate aromas and flavours. Regional Styles: Arbane is mainly produced in the Champagne region of France, where it is used to make wine in the traditional style. The wines are typically more floral compared to Chardonnay. The wines are pale in colour, with delicate aromas and flavours of citrus, white peach and honey. Food Pairing: Arbane is a versatile food-pairing wine, and pairs well with light dishes such as seafood, salads and goat cheese. The wine’s acidity and light body make it a great companion to many dishes. Fun Fact: The name Arbane most likely comes from the medieval Latin "albana", meaning "white grape", which is corroborated by its well-known synonym Albane.
