Jules Taylor Marlborough Gruner Veltliner 2016

Gruner Veltliner from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 30-Apr-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour with green-gold hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is tightly bound and firm with a good intense core of fresh white stonefruits along with subtle notes of herbs and white pepper, unveiling some nutty detail. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a firm heart with vibrant fruit flavours of white stonefruits melded with nutty lees elements and hints of nutty barrel-ferment notes, unfolding white pepper and subtle herb and mineral nuances. The palate possesses fruit richness, and is balanced by crisp, lacy acidity and a fine phenolic textures. The wine has very good linearity and carries to a lingering, detailed finish of stonefruits, nuts and herbs. This is a fine and firmly concentrated Gruner Veltliner with vibrant stonefruit flavours with subtle nutty notes on a refined, textural palate with refreshing acidity. Serve with a variety of white meat dishes over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from two sites, 68% from the ‘Griffith’ vineyard, cool-fermented in tank, and 32% from the ‘Anderson’ vineyard, indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned oak, to13.09% alc. and 1.2 g/L RS, the barrel-fermented portion undergoing MLF. 18.0/20 May 2017 RRP $21.90
