Widely planted in Austria, rare in Australia, Gruner Veltliner was carefully selected for its suitability and renowned success in cool and elevated granite country. A lovely food wine, enjoy the gentle aromatics of stone fruit and citrus, textured palate and fresh spicy finish. Just 240 dozen bottled.
There were 390 dozen of the Gruner Veltliner produced, it’s a variety that is proving to have a great affinity with the region, the nose has touches of musk and faint turkish delight against meyer lemon and green apple. There is depth and concentration of fruit with understated nectarine and finger limes having an almost peppery edge that’s accentuated by a lovely line of acidity. There are floral jasmine notes that give generosity and frame the finish. – Patrick Eckel, Wine journalist
