Appetising grüner

Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy Grüner Veltliner 2016, Adelaide Hills, AUD $25

This has a classic grüner aroma of cucumber sprinkled with white pepper. It’s crisp and dry in the mouth, lean and taut, refined and dry. It has a lot of refreshing properties and lovely balance. That peppery, almost ashy dryness makes it highly appetising. (Screwcap)
