Gruner Veltliner is a widely planted variety in Austria and is well suited to the Adelaide hills climate. I wanted to make a Gruner that shows what the Adelaide Hills can do for the Style. This is sourced from the Longview vineyard and was hand picked in early February and wild fermented in French Oak Barrels. The low crop ensured the fruit was at optimum ripeness when picked. The wine spent the next 6 months on lees in barrel before being bottled. It is a classic example that exhibits great minerality, length and spice.  It is a wine that is made to drink now and is a balanced drink that will suit the Australian climate.
