About the 2015 Corners Gruner Veltliner

Vineyard & Region

Rapaura, Wairau Plains, Marlborough.

Tasting Note

Delicate fresh, floral aromas, white peach and pear are dominant on the nose. Notes of herb, vanilla bean and inklings of white pepper shine through onto a silky, plush palate with flavours of fresh pear and zest. This wine pairs “like a dream” with the Rock Ferry Café’s fish of the day and coconut risotto!

Viticulture

Our aim in the vineyard is to grow the best fruit we can so it can speak of its home and express its personality. To do this you need healthy vines and soil. By practicing organics and incorporating some biodynamic principles we believe we are doing our best to help achieve this and let our vineyards evolve and speak as they would like.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. The free run juice was lightly settled before racking to ferment into two stainless steel barrels with organically cultured yeast, and into a neutral seasoned oak barrel. This allowed a spontaneous ferment with indigenous yeasts. The wine was then aged on full ferment lees for 8 months prior to bottling.

 

 

2015 Corners Vineyard Gruner Veltliner

Elegant and beautifully fragrant, the bouquet shows white stone fruit, rockmelon, orange peel and subtle spice aromas, followed by a concentrated and focused palate that is rounded and beautifully weighted. The wine offers layers of attractive fruit and seductive savoury nuances, wonderfully framed by perfectly pitched acidity. Flavoursome and satisfying. At its best: now to 2020. $33.00. Certified organic. 5 stars- Sam Kim.
