Add a wine out of the ordinary to your Summer list

July 27, 2016

Bannock Brae Gruner Veltliner 2015 -

Austria's favourite white wine variety.

 

Catherine and Crawford Brown have transformed a rabbit-ruined paddock into an award-winning vineyard that's an oeno-nirvana of pinot noir, riesling and now gruner veltliner

(Grooner-velt-leener). 

Bracing layers of acidity slice apart the white nectarine, lime and seashell notes of this wine. The signature white of Austria has clearly found a happy home in our deep south.

Awarding this vintage 4.5 Stars - 

 

Gru-Vee, (if you find the full name a bit much) is an exotic alternative to Sav Blanc, and worth 

consideration for your summer list  - food pairing - think spice, Gru-vee is crisp and a perfect palate cleanser for richly flavoured foods.
