Drop Zone Grüner Veltliner 2022


A good value Grüner from the Adelaide Hills. The grapes are softly pressed, the intention being to preserve the fresh fruit nature of the wine. There has been a three month period of lees stirring to increase complexity. A very pale yellow with flecks of green. Delightfully attractive at this early stage, with notes of pears, minerals and a flick of dry honey. There is just a touch of bitter almond right at the finish too which ties everything together with very good length and good balance throughout. An impressive local Grüner for drinking over the next four to six years.
