2021 Adelaide Hills Grüner Veltliner


This is a full bodied, crisp dry white with delicate aromatics of white peaches, pear and white pepper. Fermentation and maturation in neutral oak provides texture on the mid palate and contributes to the very long finish.

In the vineyard

2021 was an outstanding vintage in the Adelaide Hills; quite cool, with rainfall at all the right times for healthy growth and development of the vines. It was also a late season, meaning that the fruit ripened a couple of weeks later than usual, pushing the final stages of ripening into late March when the day time and night time temperatures are cooler. The benefit of this is a slower ripening, giving greater fruit intensity whilst retaining high levels of natural acidity.

In the winery

The winemaking was very simple – cold settled the juice for 4 days, without any enzyme or sulphur dioxide, then fermented in neutral oak barrels using only indigenous yeasts. Fermentation was very slow and steady, taking just over two months. The wine was then left on lees for a further 3 months to develop a creamy texture which helps integrate the natural acidity. The wine was then racked several times and bottled without fining.

Food Match

Serve chilled, this wine can be enjoyed with or without food. I like it with antipasto platters, or even just hommus and crackers.
