Matawhero ‘Church House’ Gruner Veltliner 2012 Gisborne 13%
N: A slightly more tropical, ripe fruit driven bouquet with a peach and mango suggestion followed by citrus and light varietal vegetal notes.
P: While this is a balanced, dry white wine the Gruner Veltliner signature is in competition with some Sauvignon Blanc-like notes. Not a fault – rather a wine that has a special ‘New Zealand-ness’ on top of the Gruner Veltliner distinctiveness. Balanced and dry with citrus and light herbaceous and tropical fruit notes.
