About The Wine

The Austrian Grüner Veltliner grape is one of the current 'it' varieties amongst wine lover circles. The Adelaide Hills region is where the variety is proving most successful, a fact that can be attributed wholly and solely to the inspired work of Hahndorf Hill guru Larry Jacobs.

Jacobs prophetically first planted the variety in the region in 2006, since then many Hills producers have followed suit. But the Hahndorf Hill GRU remains the gold standard of Australian Grüner. A clear benchmark for the variety.

The 2017 release sees Jacobs reach new heights with this wine. It was awarded 96 points by James Halliday, the highest award for Grüner Veltliner in the country.

If you want to see what this wonderful variety is all about, there is simply no better example in the country. This is outrageous value.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Six clones, hand-picked in four stages, each parcel made separately, part warm-fermented in tank, other parts extended skin contact before cold fermentation, and 30% wild-fermented in used barriques. Gold medal Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show '17. The wine places as much emphasis on texture and structure as flavour, albeit there is no shortage of citrus, wild herb, apple and white pepper here. The finish emphasises all that has gone before." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Our Gru Gruner Veltliner was rated the best Gruner Veltliner in the world outside of Austria in the 2013 International Gruner Veltliner Tasting held by Falstaff magazine in Vienna. Now try the equally beautiful 2017 Gru!

This savoury beauty has an enticing nose of citrus, nectarine and spice with a wonderfully vibrant palate of stone fruit, grapefruit and an unctuous citrus core that is offset by a long, slatey mineral tail and the all-important gentle rub of texture. Perfectly matched with all Asian cuisine, white meats, sea-foods and vegetarian dishes. But most excitingly, here is the ultimate white wine that will match perfectly with your favourite rare sirloin steak!

Gruner Veltliner is a variety that ages well and this wine should develop splendidly for between 7 - 10 years.

Blend : Grüner Veltliner (100%)
ABV : 13.0%
Closure : Screw cap
Bottle Size : 750ml
