2022 Hand Crafted Gruner Veltliner

Hand Crafted

Adelaide Hills


Story: Gruner Veltliner has found a new home in the cool southern Adelaide Hills where it produces white wines that capture both the old-world essence of Austria and the modern vibrancy and clarity of Australia.

Vintage: 2022 Higher than average rainfall over winter followed by a warm and dry spring resulting in even budburst and a textbook start for the vintage. A cool but relatively dry summer gave us beautiful even ripening conditions. This slow ripening allows great flavour development and retention of natural acidity.   

Nose: The nose displays the varietal savoriness akin to in season root vegetables (think parsnip, swede, turnip) elegant aromas of ripe melon, tropical fruit and a twist of citrus.

Palate: The palate offers a beautifully rich mouthful of pleasing flavours with a refreshing, crisp and cleansing finish. 20%-barrel ferment with partial malolactic fermentation adds weight and texture

Food Pairings: Try with Eggplant and Prosciutto Involtini with Buffalo mozzarella and basil.

Cellaring: Drink now or cellar for medium term to 2030
