2014 Handorf Hill Grüner Veltliner

Native to Austria, Grüner Veltliner seems to have found a very suitable home in Adelaide Hills. The 2012 vintage of this wine was rated the best Grüner Veltliner outside of Austria, at the 2013 International Grüner Veltliner tasting held in Vienna. I enjoyed this wine on it's own, but could see it being excellent paried with spicy Asian cuisine. 

I get aromas of stone fruit, pineapple,  and wet stone, developing more towards apple and pear on it's second day of being open. A textural wine that stuck to the middle of my tongue in a very pleasing way, with citrus flavors and moderate acidity. I hope to see more of this varietal pop up here in Australia.
