2022 Gruner Veltliner, Tumbarumba, NSW
Gruner Veltliner is a white grape variety native to Austria, Slovakia, Hungary and Czech Republic. In Australia Gruner is planted exclusively in cooler regions such as the Tumbarumba, The Adelaide Hills and Tasmania. Gruner is often compared to other varieties such Riesling with slightly more volume, texture and more approachable acidity.
The 2022 Gruner Veltliner displays aromas of grapefuit, stone fruits, citrus and subtle spice. The palate is vibrant and juicy with lovely salivating acidity and texture.
Food & Serving Suggestions
The texture and volume of Gruner means it is a very versatile wine to match with foods. The wine is very well suited to the bold flavors of Vietnamese cuisine such as summer rolls and noodle salads. Mexican foods such as fish tacos are also very well suited to the wine and of course, snhnitzel and other fried foods are very well suited.
The fruit is grown on the Coppabella vineyard in Tumbarumba. The vineyard sits at 750 m/asl on decomposed light granite soils.
