Barossa - Eden Valley Grüner Veltliner
Originating from the high altitude regions of Austria, this white wine variety is one of the newest grown in Barossa's Eden Valley region. The terrior is similar, with the micro climate slightly warmer and soils abundant in minerals from million of years in formation. Less rainfall is also a challenging factor but the end result is a very impressive white wine.
Unlike Riesling, the Grüner Veltliner variety is soft on the palate, with a lower level of acidity within the grape. The flavours are fruity with hints of ginger, white/yellow peach, mango and many tropical fruits with a textured and soft finish.
Food matching will enhance your wine experience with Grüner Veltliner but if it's served chilled on a hot summers afternoon with be very refreshing. Tested and proven a success with spicy cuisine or full flavoured foods. A match made in heaven accompanied with an antipasto plate of fresh rock melon, Prosciutto and lashings of Barossa's Vache Curd cheese.

Vineyard: Established on a single vineyard estate (Avon Brae) in the High Eden region of the Barossa. Hand managed to meticulous detail with attention required with the dense grown vine canopy; allowing airflow, extra light and shading where needed to ripen the Gruner Veltliner grapes.
Season: In stark contrast to the previous year, the 2017 growing season followed a long wet winter that replenished soil water profiles with a wet and windy September. A mild summer included regular rainfall events ensuring a long, cool ripening. Bunch weights were increased leading to high yield levels. Harvest date March.
Wine making: Machine picked wine grapes were picked in the cool of the evening to maintain the delicate nature and aromatics with the Gruner grapes. Natural wild yeasts and some time on skins with lees stiring before a final gentle pressing and bottled.
Appearance: Clear to pale straw
Aroma/Bouquet: Honey dew and melon notes alongside lychee and fresh summer stone fruits of the season.
Palate: Crunchy passion fruit over grapefruit and lingering spice meander around the palate of this luscious wine variety. Soft integrated acidity with melon fruits add depth and texture with a light to medium finish.
Food Pairing: Spicy Asian cuisine, king fish ceviche with fresh red chilli, oyster cream stew or fresh cooked prawns and lashings of freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Vineyard: This is third Grüner vintage from vines growing blissfully alongside their natural soul mate, Riesling (and showing some similar characters). This variety is vigorous and creates more fruit than required which leads to many passes through the vineyard of bunch thinning.
Season: In stark contrast to the previous year, the 2017 growing season followed a long wet winter that replenished soil water profiles and a wet, windy September. A mild summer included regular rainfall events ensuring a long, cool ripening period. Bunch weights increased as the variety naturally creates heavy fruit loads.
Appearance: Pale straw in colour.
Aroma/Bouquet: Ginger and spice with ripe tropical notes lure from the glass. Cloves, white pepper and herbaceous nuances are just a few enticing aromas.
Palate: The palate is broad offering nectarine and white peach over citrus. A textural wine, yet a pure and clean mineral finish.
Food Pairing: King fish or whiting with slivers of red chilli or Moroccan Tagine. Whatever the food match, it’s a match made in heaven. An extremely versatile white.
