2018 Huia Grüner Veltliner
The 2018 Grüner Veltliner is a single-vineyard wine from the Kennedy Road Vineyard in the Hawkesbury Valley. This vineyard is certified in conversion to irganics with BioGro. The growing season furbished us early with sunny ripening conditions. This combined with the well drained, stony clay soils and crop thinning provided beautifully exposed fruit. This has given us an elegant, floral, citrus-based dry Grüner Veltliner.
The grapes were hand harvested at optimum ripeness on 1st April. These were de-stemmed and crushed to the press. The wine fermented in stainless steel tanks using organic yeasts which carried out a long, cool ferment, retaining the vibrant fruit characters.
The nose is aromatic, full of floral and citrus notes. On the palate the wine shows jasmine and honeysuckle alongside mandarin lemon citrus. This Huia Grüner Veltliner shows good length and fresh and lively finish. This wine is vegan and vegetarian friendly.
The Real Review
Moderately weighty Grüner Veltliner with classic citrus, mandarin and spice flavours. Good acidity perfectly balances a small amount of sweetness to give the wine a little pleasing tension.
