Medium bodied with juicy stone-fruit and citrus flavours

Grape Variety | , ,
Also known as ‘gru-vee’. From the light bodied, crisp, fresh and lean style to the fuller-bodied riper styles, GV or gru-vee as it’s become known, can deliver it all. The hallmark of a good Gruner is its acidity level which is always high. Don’t be fooled by its delicate expression as it first hits your palate; this grape tends to open up on the mid-palate to express citrus, spicy and mineral notes. Always with a good length. The younger wine for everyday enjoyment tend to show some white pepper and lime notes. At the more premium end, single vineyard produced wines or slightly aged styles, have a richer body and mouthfeel with complexity
Medium bodied, medium acidity, easy drinking with freshness
One of the finest white grapes of them all, Riesling is floral, with high acidity, and can be bone-dry as well as extremely sweet. Tremendous ageing potential.

Style |
A wine between 12.5-13.5% alcohol with more some intensity of fruit and stronger flavours than in a light bodied wine. Climate and winemaking techniques such as when the grapes are picked at harvest time, ageing, oak will affect the shape and boldness of a wine. With medium to high acidity and/or medium tannins, these are quintessential foodie wines. If your preference is for wines with a bit more body and concentration, then look out for these grape varieties: 2-3 year aged whites such as Chardonnay, Riesling, Gruner Veltliner and for the reds, Sangiovese, Garnacha, Cabernet Franc, Kekfrankos.
