About

The Wild Gruner is part of Hugh Guthrie’s range of ‘concept’ wines. This range is about pushing certain varieties to their limits and exploring the full range of flavours and textures that can be created with creative winemaking.

The 2016 is a very interesting look at this Austrian variety. It takes the classic varietal notes of floral tones and white pepper to the next level.

After being destemmed and crushed, the fruit was fermented in old puncheons where it sat on solids for several months prior to bottling. Hugh is going for added grip and texture in this often neutral variety and this is a very successful example of just that.

What It Tastes Like

Green apple and a dusting of pepper. Fairly classic nose with some added layers of funk, vanilla and nuts. There’s so much more weight here than your average Gruner. It’s round and voluptuous with soft grip to it and a milky mid palate. Yummy stuff.
