Lark Hill Grüner Veltliner 2019 (Bungendore, New South Wales) "...fig, melon, white pepper..."
Lark Hill planted the first Gruner Veltliner vineyard in Australia in 2005, using cuttings from two clones brought into Tasmania in the 1960s. The Gruner is soaked on skins for 12 hours before being pressed to 5-10 year old barrels for indigenous yeast fermentation and maturation on lees. Aromas of melon, fig and white pepper follow through to a rich, textured palate and lingering bright acidity. Gruner Veltliner was one of the 2 wines which took Chris to the Finals of the 2017 Young Gun of Wine Awards.
"With flavours of cut herbs, ripe fig and white pepper, fine texture and mineral acidity, our GV is a delicious food friendly wine. It has also demonstrated a capacity to develop wonderful depth and complexity with age." - Winery Notes
