100% Grüner Veltliner grown by the McKee family in the Blind River sub-region of the Awatere Valley of Marlborough.
Hand-picked fruit was treated gently at the winery with minimal skin contact. Precise press-cuts ensured that only the free run, less phenolic juice was used in the finished wine. After settling the juice was fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures to retain fruit and freshness.
Grüner Veltliner is a very textural wine. Flavours of white peach mingle well with the subtle peppery spice notes. A mineral complexity, which is so reflective of the Blind River sub-region, gives this wine a clean and crisp appeal. The balance of the fruit, acidity and phenolics work beautifully together, and leads to a long dry finish.
