2016 Jules Taylor Gruner Veltliner Marlborough

Share on Facebook

 



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.



This wine is Marlborough's unique expression of the old world classic. Light yellow in colour, it's delicately perfumed with green apple, white fleshed nectarine, orange blossom notes and hints of spice. The palate is soft & elegant with flavours of stonefruit and just the right amount of peppery spice.



The fruit for this wine was hand harvested from one small vineyard in Marlborough, then whipped in to the winery, lightly pressed and cold settled over 48 hours to remove any solids before fermenting with selected yeast strains. The fermentation was kept cool and long to retain the vibrant aromatics. Afterwards I have gently clarified, stabilised and bottled the wine with a screw cap closure to retain freshness.
