Alpine Valleys, VIC

Delicate and classy Grüner Veltliner from Jo Marsh.

About The Wine

A tiny batch of Grüner Veltliner fell into Jo Marsh's lap in 2017, and Jo's not one to turn away a stray variety.

The Grüner was made with classic Billy Button simplicity and precision. Jo describes it as Riesling on steroids and that pretty well sums it up.

It's tight and dry with smooth glassy texture and a sprinkling of spice.

A lovely Grüner done to a tee.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"I’m not exactly sure where the fruit comes from for this wine – other than that it’s Alpine Valleys – but Jo Marsh is onto something here. This shows great promise. Pepper-spice, crunchy fruit, juice aplenty and a fresh, floral, satisfying finish. It’s a lovely white wine, slender despite its alcohol, everything finessed into position. I’d drink it now but only because it’s drinking so well; time may well bring greater interest." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Gruner Veltliner is a variety that originates from Austria - in fact one in every three vines in Austria is Gruner Veltliner! It is aromatic and crisp like a Riesling, but with a bit more generosity and texture on the palate. A portion of full solids, natural ferment in this wine has created some savoury complexity and an added dimension to the palate.

Blend : Grüner Veltliner (100%)
ABV : 14.5%
Closure : Screw cap
