2021 Black Spur Gruner Veltliner
ORIGIN OF VARIETAL
Grüner Veltliner (grew-ner felt-lee-ner) is most widely grown in Austria, and is similar profile to Riesling on the nose and palate but with much more texture. Boat O’Craigo Grüner is grown on the cool climate site at Healesville. The wine begins with aromas of citrus, green apple and spice. The palate has moorish texture, grapefruit and fleshy stone fruit, and a clean fresh finish.
Hand-picked, destemmed, some skin contact prior to pressing. Fermented on light solids at 20 degrees to retain and accentuate aromatics. Matured on lees for 4 months and bottled early to capture the freshness.
