"Dried-flower, chamomile and beeswax aromas with light, dried herbs on offer, too. The palate has a bright, light and crunchy feel. Some handy stone-fruit flavors build into the finish. Certainly one of the better New Zealand examples of grüner veltliner. Drink now. Screw cap." (JS)

"This is a fruity, likable wine, with fragrances of honey-flecked pear, peach, white flower blossom and white pepper. The palate is a delicious play between the orchard fruit, creamy texture and chalky acidity, finishing on a sweet fruited, peppery note." (WE)

Winery Notes:
The best way to describe Grüner Veltliner is that it’s a cool climate wine somewhere between an aromatic white and a chardonnay. One of the reasons that we’re making it is to stretch our wings, to see if there is life after Sauvignon Blanc. The initial results suggest that there might be.
