The Paddler Gruner Veltliner 2012

100% Grüner Veltliner from a vineyard located in the Rapaura area of Marlborough. This is a new variety in New Zealand which shows great promise.

The last of all varieties to be picked, fruit was destemmed, crushed, pressed and then press-cut. The pressings were then handled oxidatively. The wine was cool-fermented, with 20% in French oak puncheons to add just a hint of richness and the balance going to stainless steel tank. The wine was then recombined and bottled.

Winemaker's Comments 

Wonderful, pure aromatics exemplifying classic notes of mandarin, ripe peach and white pepper. With a lengthy textural finish, the wine  delights the palate.
