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 Gruner.
With a stack of Gold Medals and 96 points from James Halliday, this is a clear benchmark for the variety - if you want to see what Gruner is all about, there is simply no better example in the country.
