2016 Stoney Rise Gruner Veltliner


The 2016 vintage brought us a long dry summer.  This was broken by some rain late in January and again late in February, which helped to keep the leaves on the vines to help finish off the ripening.  This is the 6th release of Grüner for us and whilst we are still learning about the variety, this wine is the most Grüner like Grüner that we have made.

The 2016 Grüner is showing all the true varietal characters of the variety.  There are hints of lemon zest, musk and aniseed on the nose.  The palate has a slightly viscous mouthfeel with gooseberry as the main fruit flavour.  There is the customary tight acidity to give the wine a clean crisp finish.

A wine that suits many food styles and is equally at home with spice as it is with fresh seafood, or just on it's own.  This wine was bottled without being fined or filtered.
