And with over 40 years of growing the Rose family know their land intimately, and which grapes grow well there...like this alluring 'other white' grape Gruner Veltliner. Originally from Austria, Gruner Veltliner is really gaining traction here in NZ, and is well suited to Marlborough's climate with many of the top examples coming from there. Similarities across a range of aromatic whites including Riesling, Albariño and in this instance dry Pinot Gris.
It has a lovely balance between vibrant fresh fruit and a clean acid structure. It's incredibly versatile with foods and very refreshing - but most of all, it's great to break out of your drinking mold and try something new and interesting! It’s a refreshing medley of zesty citrus, orange blossom and stone fruit with hints of spice and herbs... a dry white taste sensation. It's also got a wonderful chalky texture and fabulous acidity adding to its superb feel and length. 2019 was a knockout vintage for whites, and this one is tasting superbly right now and will continue to do so for another three to four years.
$14.99 is HALF PRICE for one of NZ's finest examples of this famous Austrian grape. It will particularly appeal to Dry Pinot Gris lovers, but equally Riesling and European dry white wine drinkers. Incredible quality and style you would not normally be exposed to at $14.99 bottle... you simply cannot go wrong. 122 cases will fly out the door... so get yourself a case or two before it's all gone... next time you buy it you’ll have to pay full price under Wairau Rivers Reserve Range.
