Rock Ferry ‘The Corners Vineyard’ Marlborough Gruner Veltliner 2016

Gruner Veltliner from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Nov-2018
Bright, light golden-hued yellow colour with lemon-green tints, lighter on the edge. The nose is soft and gentle with delicate fruit aromas of white and yellow stonefruits infused with subtle, fresh herb notes. A little nutty and mineral detail emerges with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a light fruited core with flavours of white stonefruits entwined with herbal and nutty notes. This has fruit extract, providing a light phenolic-textured line with light, lacy acidity in the background, lending tension and energy. The wine carries to a dry, light finish with some grip. This is a light-fruited dry Gruner Veltliner with some phenolic grip and texture, and light background acid freshness. Match with pork and veal dishes over the next 3 years. Hand-picked fruit and WBP, the wine indigenous yeast fermented in stainless-steel barrels and seasoned oak to 12.5% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 8 months on lees. Certified BioGro organic. 16.5+/20 Nov 2018 RRP $33.00
