Lime Rock

Lime Rock Gruner Veltliner 2011 Hawkes Bay (Central) 13.5%
N: Quite varietal with a signature vegetal green bean, radish and sweet hay suggestion, followed by fruity elements of apple,  pineapple and lemon skin; a rocky soil note and some white florals show as well. An interesting bouquet – outside the square.

P: Immediately dry and lemony with a crisp and vibrant palate texture – almost mealy as the acid races through my saliva. The lemon, pineapple skin and vegetal flavours return with power and push. Dry finish, medium length, balanced.
