2016 Grüner Veltliner
2016 is the first vintage of Grüner from our Longwood vineyard. Savoury texture and spice characters complement aromas of orange zest and ripe peach. The rich, full bodied flavours are balanced by vibrant zesty acidity and soft phenolics.
Vinified using traditional methods, a small parcel of the fruit was soaked on skins for a few hours before the juice was pressed off and fermented in old French oak barrels. This contributes to the texture and length on the palate. The other parcel was pressed off skins immediately for elegance, and fermented in stainless steel to preserve primary aroma and finesse. The blending of the two parcels gives a perfect balance of flavours and textures in the finished wine.
