Pike & Joyce Gruner Veltliner 2018
Appearance: Pale green/straw.
Aroma: Restrained aromas of stonefruit, crushed nettles and gentle peppery (rocket-like) notes. Also just a swirl of tropical fruit in the mix too perhaps.
Palate: The palate is crisp and dry with the stonefruit and nettle/pepper characters driving the wine on the flavour front. A little texture on the finish adds some length and structure.
Summary: Our 6th release of this distinctive Austrian varietal that has seemingly found a second home in the Adelaide Hills. Drink now and over next 2-4 years. Try it with pan fried veal with a creamy sauce.
