Babich Family Estates ‘Individual Vineyard – Headwaters Organic Block’ Marlborough Gruner Veltliner 2011

Gruner Veltliner from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Jun-2011
Fruit from the ‘Headwaters' vineyard in the Wairau Valley, cool stainless-steel fermented to 12.0% alc. and dryness. Very pale straw colour with light green hues, this has a fresh, aromatic and lifted nose with white stonefruit, pepper and gentle herbs with some fermentation esters. There is some good depth to the nose. Very dry, very crisp and racy on palate, this has flavours of steely green apples with a citrus and esters lift, and minerally, wet stone notes. The wine is tight and a little unyielding at present, but the fruit weight promises to open out and reveal more given another 6 months in bottle. Drink with sushi and shellfish over the next 2-3+ years. Certified Organic. 16.0+/20 Jun 2011 RRP $25.00
