Forrest Marlborough Gruner Veltliner 2016

Gruner Veltliner from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Dec-2018
Bright, even, straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter edged. The nose is up-front with fresh and deep aromas of green stonefruits and fresh herbs along with waxy, nutty and lanolin elements. The aromatics have a mono-dimensional intensity that reveals detail with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a rich core with plenty of weight and presence of white and green stonefruits, along with nutty and lanolin nuances. The fruit forms a concentrated heart with light phenolic textures lending a little dry grip. The acidity is integrated, and the wine is carried by the phenolics to a firm, lingering, nuanced finish of herbs and stonefruits. This is a dry Gruner Veltliner with good weight and presence along with light phenolic textures and structure. Match with herb-marinated poultry, pork and veal over the next 3+ years. Fruit from a single site in the Southern Valleys, fermented in stainless-steel wit 7.5% in seasoned oak to 12.0% alc. and 4.75 g/L RS, the barrrique-oaked portion spending 7 months on lees. 18.0-/20 Dec 2018 RRP $25.00
