2018 Reserve Grüner Veltliner wins Trophy

(GROO-ner Velt-LEEN-er)

Canberra & Region Wine Show 2018 -Trophy

"Always a fun & exciting class to judge. Lots of different styles and techniques being used, with some impressive wines as a result. Best wines had complexity, flavour and length ahead of technique" Sebastian Growther, Master Sommelier Rockpool

Gruner is one of the major varieties grown in Austria (over 1/3 of all plantings) and because of its versatility can produce a range of styles from light, crisp and youthful to rich and full-bodied depending on the microclimate. Some producers even make dessert wine and sparklings. Grüner means green in German.

Gruner is often described as similar to Riesling but with a bit more richness and a distinctively peppery aroma and flavour. Yellow apple, green pear, green bean, and white pepper are common descriptors.
This wine was made entirely from fruit grown in our Bowral Vineyards and is our first release of Gruner Veltliner.

On the nose there are fresh green herb aromas, celery, green vegetable, with a dash of stonefruit and citrus fruit character.

The ripe palate has nice weight and texture, with balanced acidity, featuring delicious stonefruit and subtle honey flavours.

Pair with spicy Asian vegetable dishes or Japanese. Or just try where you would normally have Riesling.

Drink now to 2022.
