Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy Grüner Veltliner 2013

Tasted in a bracket of Australian Grüner Veltliner from the 2013 vintage, with food (schnitzel, creamy potatoes and sauerkraut - in the hope of tasting something appropriate to the origin of the variety).

The second of two Grüner from the K1/ Geoff Hardy camp. This, the fuller of the two in style, was picked two weeks later than the K1 example. The resultant wine showing riper fruit and a fuller textural palate.

Smells richer than its stable-mate: a honey glaze to a little root veg, some background tropicals with a suggestion of golden toasted breadcrumb.

Lacks a little in the middle - comparatively - pulling a little flavour through. It's more about feel and texture here, providing a fuller feel and creaminess in the mouth. 87
