Stockman’s Ridge Signature Range Grüner Veltliner 2022


The grapes harvested for this version were left until they were slightly riper than those for the ‘Rider’. Maturation was in older French oak with lees stirring over a three month period with partial malolactic fermentation. Straw gold in colour, the nose is intense and yet refined. The wine is well balanced from start to finish with notes of apricot kernels, stonefruits, dry herbs and an appealing egg custard character. A supple and seductive texture follows, layered and long. This is a superb local example of GV which should drink well over the next six to eight years. Love it.
