Buy of the Week AU

The Pawn Wine Co. The Austrian Attack Grüner Veltliner 2016, Adelaide Hills, AUD $25

This crisp, light-bodied dry white has an intense spicy, white pepper aroma with creamy, nutty undertones. It’s appetising and leaves a refreshing finish and aftertaste. Fermented in older barrels, which adds texture without oak aroma or flavour. (Screwcap)
