Brilliant clarity and pale straw colour. Aromas of pear, white pepper, celery with hints of melon. The palate is dry and spicy with a lingering finish of radish and golden delicious, underpinned with a lovely crunchy refreshing acidity.
"Plenty of subtle grapefruit, pear and earthy peppery notes on the nose, leading to a nice textured palate, with mineral characters, citrus note and excellent texture and depth. A white wine of excellent food appeal, we'd suggest seafood, spice Asian and pork dishes. An ideal white wine for those seeking an alternative to Riesling and Pinot Gris." From Auscellardoor.
The 2015 growing season produced very low yields at our single vineyard - a relatively warm and dry vintage. The Gruner was hand-harvested based on flavour development. It was crushed, de-stemmed and must chilled to 3 degrees Celsius before gentle airbag pressing, Free run and pressings fractions kept separate, only free run used for Kuhl. The juice was then settled and racked with some of the lees returned to the clarified juice to accentuate the mid palate richness of the variety. The wine was bottled relatively early to preserve freshness.
