The Wine

This Austrian native is proving to be the superstar white variety of the Adelaide Hills, and without doubt, has found its second home.

Distinctively varietal, white pear with lifted hints of dill, celery and rocket. Packed with warm spice, pepper and pretty floral notes.The palate is lively with luscious mouthfeel and tangy acidity.

Food... Grüner Veltliner is one of the most food friendly white wines you will ever meet. Pair it with Seafood, Asian dishes, cheese, cold meat, salads, and even desert - the list goes on...

Drinking... Enjoy now or cellar to 2024.
