Waimea Estates Nelson Gruner Veltliner 2016

Gruner Veltliner from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 08-Dec-2016
Bright, even straw-yellow colour, a little lighter on the edge. This has an elegant nose with a fine and delicate core of white stonefruits entwined with subtle notes of fresh herbs, white pepper and attractively lifted florals. The aromatics build in fragrance and intensity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, this is slender in proportion with a softly concentrated and well-packed core of white stonefruit and soft fresh herb and white pepper notes, along with white florals. The palate is softlt textured and flows smoothly, underlined by soft, integrated acidity. This has good linearity and the wine carries to a softly flavoured finish. This is a slender and elegant, dry Gruner Veltliner with a softly concentrated core of white stoneftuits, herbs and florals and a smooth-textured, flowing palate. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and poultry over the next 2-3+ years. Fruit from three estate vineyards, cool-fermented in tank to 13.0% alc. and 3.3 g/L RS, a portion of the wine given lees contact. 17.5/20 Dec 2016 RRP $23.00
