Forrest Gruner Veltliner 2021, Marlborough

Grüner Veltliner from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Aug-2021
Bright, pale yellow with some depth, even colour throughout. The wine has very subtle, and delicate effervescent. The nose is full, with elegantly presented aromas of citrus, stonefruit melded with white pepper dusting. Medium-light bodied, dry to taste, the palate is perfumed, interweave ripe peach, lime and white blossoms; lightly dusted with white pepper. Stony mineral flows with a lean acid line to a peppery, crisp finish. This is an elegant, crisp Gruner Veltliner with succulent fruit on a peppery, mineral drive. Match with crispy fried whitebait and ceviche over the next 3-4 years. The majority of the fruit was fermented in stainless steel to 13.5% alc, and a small portion was fermented in old oak barrel. Vegan friendly. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $28
