Longview Kuhl Gruner Veltliner

Longview Kuhl Gruner Veltliner 2017

Adelaide Hills, South Australia   |    750ml   |    13%

The native Austrian variety of Gruner Veltliner continues to attract plenty of attention in Australia with Longview of the Adelaide Hills one winery leading the charge. The 2017 Longview Kuhl Gruner Veltliner offers plenty of subtle grapefruit, pear and earthy peppery notes on the nose, leading to a nice textured palate, with mineral characters, citrus note and excellent texture and depth. A white wine of excellent food appeal, we'd suggest seafood, spice Asian and pork dishes.

"95 Points. Crunchy, spicy, aromatic, even grainy; this wine can be appreciated from a number of different angles, but it's the body, the flow and sheer confidence it exudes that really sets it apart. This is a white wine of real presence. All things considered, the price is a steal. Screwcap. 13% alc. To 2021. $25" - Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion 2019.

"KÜHL this release has jumped the stated alcohol up, making the nose far more fruit driven than the 2016, but no less exciting. Still with spicy pepper, fennel and earthy green leaves supporting pears, grapefruit skin and white florals, it appears intense and serious. A little palate weight with white minerally rocks, yet expressive pure fruit that simply just is. The finish is tight, linear and pin point focused. It offers no pretense, this is wine already comfortable in its own skin. A flagship Grüner from the Adelaide Hills. RRP: $25 Alc: 13% Rating: 17.75/20" - Regan Drew, www.vinonotebook.com.

Longview is one of the first vineyards in Australia to plant Gruner Veltiliner.

KÜHL - the German word for cool - is named to reflect the cool-climate of the Adelaide Hills and Longview's progressive ethos.

A remarkably versatile variety, Gruner can be made young and light or rich and unctuous. Our KÜHL lands somewhere in the middle. Initial aromas of grapefruit and celery progress to a palate of spicy radish and golden delicious apple, with crunchy acidity and white pepper overtones.
