Maiden voyage here for Conrad Pohlinger and his Adelaide Hills-based operation. The influence from his time spent with Brendan and Laura Carter comes through clear as a bell with the first release of his Gruner Veltliner. As well as some inspiration taken "from the riper, more textural styles of the Wachau." according to Conrad. This is not the classic 'line and length' Gru, this has a bit of texture, some richness and weight in the palate - reminiscent of some of the UZ Fianos perhaps - and it works an absolute treat with this variety. A slightly wild but deliciously enjoyable take on this Austrian variety.

What it Tastes Like

Well it doesn't look like Gruner, there's a yellowy tinge to the fruit. There's a waxiness from the time on skins. Spreads wide and thick though the mouth all chewy and delicious. A crispness to the end which keeps it clipping along at a good pace. It's about the mouthfeel with this wine. Some dried apple. Some lemon preserve. Some spice and herbs. Yum. Real surprise here.
