Grüner’s naturally at home in Austria, while here in Australia it likes cooler regions such as the Adelaide Hills, Tasmania and in this example: Tumbarumba. The fruit grown at 750 metres above sea level on the Coplabella vineyard.
Nick Spencer Wines, Grüner Veltliner, Tumbarumba, 2019
Pithy lemon and lime citrus, white nectarine, spicier peppery rocket/arugula notes, a touch of apple skin with a sharp yet cooling, earthy stone element. Grüner can carry a little more heft than its other aromatic cousins, but here we’ve got a fine, linear expression. Tight lines with bright acidity stepping neatly and a handsome texture that is more than capable of matching a schnitzel as well more delicate seafood dishes
