Lark Hill Gruner Veltliner 2010

Lark Hill's vineyards are located at a cool 860 metres above sea level in the Canberra district. The vineyards are also managed biodynamically.  They are also one of the few producers of gruner veltliner in Australia, this being only their second vintage of this varietal.

What then of the wine?  I was very impressed.  A noticeable aroma of pepper and citrus.  The palate has very good length and flavours of apples, pears and spices.  Very spicy, actually.  An excellent and interesting wine that is in a league above a recently tasted Domaine Wachau from the Austrian home of this varietal.  88 to 89 points.

Price: $45
Abv: 12.5%

Would I buy it having tasted it? Yes
