The Doctors’ Gruner Veltliner and St Laurent Austrian Offerings


Under ‘The Doctors’ label, John Forrest has bottled some of his most exciting wines in terms of innovation. New varietals and techniques in the vineyard and winery come through here, as well as wines made in styles that are not mainstream. John’s work with the Austrian varieties is in this brand, and he is among this country’s leaders with Gruner Veltliner and St Laurent. Chris Andrew, assistant winemaker travels to Austria every year to make wine at the Salomon winery in the Wachau, and his experience no doubt provides additional insights in their production. Here, I review the 2012 vintage wines, the third of Gruner Veltliner and the second for St Laurent.
