About The Wine

Nick Spencer's second release of Tumbarumba Grüner Veltliner is excellent.

It comes from a single vineyard in the Tumbarumba region, at 700m above sea level. The cool temperatures and the old volcanic soils on this site make it the ideal location for this Austrian variety.

Nick's taken the fruit, pressed it to a mixture of stainless steel and bottled it after a couple of months on lees. No tricks, just doing his best to preserve the purity of fruit that this cool site offers.

Nick's move towards a gentler winemaking style paying dividends with the delicacy of Gruner. It's a delicious rendition and one that's sure to be incredibly popular with fans of the grape.

About Nick Spencer Wines

Nick Spencer made a name for himself after a hugely successful decade-long stint as chief winemaker at Eden Road, before deciding in 2017 to take the plunge and start his very own label.

The Nick Spencer wines are, like Eden Road's, focused on the regions of the NSW High Country, in particular, Tumbarumba and Gundagai.

With Nick's access to some of the region's best fruit, his wines are all about balance, style and drinkability, with Nick's stamp of quality on top. Tiny volumes made and an exciting producer to watch out for!

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Line. Length. It's a more classic Grü this year from Nick. Tight, crunchy with granny smith and grapefruit zest, some pepper and celery, but beautiful weight to the wine. It thrusts through the mouth like a rapier. Cool. Crunchy. Spicy. Devine drinking. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

Sourced from a vineyard that lies at 700 meters above sea level in Tumbarumba.

The fruit was lightly pressed to stainless steel and allowed to settle overnight prior to fermentation.

Following fermentation the wine was settled, filtered and bottled early to retain freshness and vitality.

 Aromas of grapefruit, pear, Granny Smith apples. The wine is bright, crunchy, and refreshing with lovely texture and length. A perfect accompaniment to noodles, dumplings, bao or even tacos.
