Gruner Veltliner 2021 - New Release

Aromas of peach, dried apricot, yarrow and spice. Complex and fresh with a creamy texture, autumn floral notes, stonefruit and a hint of pepper followed by vibrant finish.

  • This wine is from our BioGro certified organic and Demeter certified biodynamic estate vineyard located in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago. The vineyard was planted in 1998 with the exception of our Gruner Veltliner which was planted in 2008. The soils on the beautiful north facing slope are Waenga fine sandy loam and Letts steepland soil with an elevation of 217 - 264 metres, on 44.55° south.
  • With warm Spring conditions, growth was steady throughout the vineyard. Flowering began in mid-November and following a cold front in late November, frost risk remained low for the remainder of the season. The new year brought both rain and snow leaving a dusting on the Pisa Ranges, the lowest we have ever seen this far into the season. Warm dry weather followed right through into harvest which enabled the fruit to ripen to perfection. Veraison took place at the end of January and we began our harvest in March. Optimal conditions early in the season have resulted in an above average yield and a long dry season has provided us with exceptional quality.
  • Hand-picked on the 7th April. Whole bunch pressed, free run juice only. Natural fermentation and aged on yeast lees for 9 months during which full malolactic fermentation occurred. Bottled on the 21st February 2022.
  • pH: 3.28
    Total Acidity: 5.4
    Alcohol: 13.5%
    Volume: 750ml
    Residual Sugar: 4.0 g/l
