Nick Spencer Wines Grüner Veltliner 2018

Nick was worried about this wine. Whilst maturing after fermentation, he thought he’d made another riesling or pinot gris, such was the acid and lightness of being. After around 8 months though, he believes it filled out and came into its own.

Nick Spencer Wines, Grüner Veltliner, Gundagai, 2018

Soap, slightly waxy nose, hints of caramel and white pepper, green tobacco. Broad palate spilling out of the corset, still a fine spine of minerality to give age. Pears, soft lime, fine acidity with a residual waxy mouthfeel. Only the 2nd vintage, look out Australia, there’s a new Grunerist in town.
