Jules Taylor Gruner Veltliner 2011

Jules Taylor Gruner Veltliner 2011 Austria comes to New Zealand

Tasting Notes

2/1/12
You won’t see much of this varietal in the New World, its home of distinction being Austria, but if any place should be able to pull it off it would be New Zealand. This has an engaging nose which plays its subtle perfume, spice and light herbal inflections perfectly off of the nectarine and waxy yellow apple fruit notes aromatically. This has a broader palate with more residual sugar than its Austrian counterparts, but the acidity keeps it fresh and lively with nicely defined nectarine fruit finishing dry. Unique and delicious, enjoy this over the next 12-18 months.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

85 pts Wine Spectator Web Only - 2012
White peach, pear and yellow apple notes are smooth and medium-bodied, with a moderate amount of acidity. Doesn't read "Grüner Veltliner", but it's a good quaff. Drink now.
