Description

Phil & Chris Rose planted their first vines in the Wairau River region of Marlborough four decades ago in 1978. Talk about growing and knowing your terroir, no one knows more about this Marlborough sub region than the Roses. Now the quintessential family business... these days son, Hamish, grows it; another son, Sam, makes it and daughter, Caroline, runs their outstanding front of house cellar door and restaurant. When you know your land like the back of your hand... and your first vines were planted 40-years ago, with most of your 100% family owned estate vineyards north of 20-years old... it all leads to the making of outstanding wine, and this Gruner Veltliner is no exception. A native variety of Austria that is gaining traction in NZ, watch this space.

Smells

delicate lemon-honey, citrus and floral aromas with hints of fennel and thyme.

Tastes

flavours of citrus zest, orange blossom, white pepper with hints of basil entice on the palate all enhanced by the great structure, excellent balance and length. There is a lovely chalky texture adding an extra dimension. A very good example of an NZ Gruner. Drinking well now and over the next 3-4 years, perfect with cheese, canapes, and other entrees.
