2019 Gruner Veltliner

Adelaide Hills

Story: Planted in the ancient soils of the K1 Vineyard, Gruner Veltliner has found a new home in the cool southern Adelaide Hills where it produces exceptional white wines that capture both the old-world essence of Austria and the modern vibrancy and clarity of Australia.

Vintage: The 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions and contributed to lower crops due to the wet weather and windy conditions interfering with fruit set during flowering. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.

Nose: Aromas of exotic Nashi pear and spices lift from the glass with hints of apple blossom, citrus rind and celery.

Palate: The palate is led by a crisp acid line with notes of green apple, Nashi pear, lemongrass and kaffir lime followed by a long and elegant mineral finish with a touch of French oak.

Pairing: This wine pairs particularly well with pea and mint arancini topped with shaved grana padano.

Cellaring: Drink now or to 2025
