2016 Gruner Veltliner

45.00

2016 was our hottest & earliest vintage, with record Spring & Summer heat. Despite this the Gruner Veltliner vines fared well, ripening a balanced crop steadily in March and producing some of the best fruit we have harvested.
The juice was fermented using native yeasts in older french oak barrels (7+ years) to give funkiness, texture and build complexity, without imparting oak character. 
As a young wine this shows exotic melon and fig aromas, a light and taut palate and a hint of texture to match with food. It will continue to improve over some years, gaining depth, complexity and the typical Gruner-driven spice characters of white pepper, parsnip and fresh herbs.
