Accolades

First crop fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 14.0% alc. and 3.3 g/L rs, the wine including oak fermented and lees contact components from the press juice. Bright straw-yellow with green hues, pale on rim. This has a fresh, full nose of white stonefruits and pepper, quite up-front and with good depth. Dry to taste, this medium-bodied white has moderately lush flavours of stonefruits with elements of herbs and pepper, and a little tropical fruit richness. The wine becomes firm through the mid-palate and offers a dry, textural mouthfeel that leads to a solid finish, the acidity discreet and balanced. A full-flavoured Gruner Veltliner that is firm and dry finishing. Match with antipasto, seafood and poultry over the next 2 years.
