Australia's Best Gruner Veltliners

Australia's Best Gruner Veltliners

When we heard there was a panel of judges from Young Guns of Wine set on finding Austalia's best Gruner Veltliner, we couldn't have been more excited to see what they would say about ours! 

The experts gathered every Australian Gruner available and named their top 6 wines and our Signature Gruner Veltliner made the cut! Here is what they said:

Dowling and Rush both had this in their top three wines of the day, with Wyse and Hulme also having it in their top selections. Rush noting, “This was my favourite nose to revisit because it took me through a wonder of Eastern flavours. It was delicate plumes of Japanese incense, salty-sweet satay sauce (think roasted peanuts, coconut milk and kecap manis), ginger, lychee, freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice, starfruit, yoghurty lassi. Something slighty herbal too, like a fresh mint tea or eucalyptus. Absolutely fascinating and just think of the delicious pairings you could do.” Dowling’s note read, “Stone fruit, fresh cut herbs and spice alongside some savoury notes, interesting nose. This wine is an explosion of fruits including citrus, rambutan, stone fruits ably backed up with some bracing acidity giving some frame to the wine. On the fuller bodied side, this is a wine to enjoy with a myriad of foods.” “Wine opens lithe yet textural, very silky and luxurious mid-palate with some bright green ginger, lemon curd, peach blossom, acacia, daffodils, long and elegant finish,” said Wyse. “Thinking some Japanese sashimi with yuzu koshu, unagi, or maybe scallops grilled on the half shell.” “A remarkably savoury expression, the nose is dominated by turned earth, tarragon, sweet pea, white pepper, and an oceanic, briny quality,” added Hulme. “A sense of creamy nougat-like aroma, but along with a touch of citrus and stone fruit plays merely a supporting role.”
