What is Grüner Veltliner ??

The indigenous grape variety of Austria where it is the country’s most planted variety. The mutant offspring of Savagnin (Sauvy B’s parent) & St. Georgener-Rebe a weird obscure native variety from Leithagebirge in Eastern Austria.

A long time favourite with Wine Nerds it’s a wine fast picking up traction with the next generation thanks to it’s amazing aromatics, light palate and steely acidity.

It was first bought into Australia by Chris Carpenter of Lark Hill in the Canberra District in the early 00’s and quickly making it’s way across to the Adelaide Hills with the first commercial styles not being produced until 2010. A Variety that is known to thrive in Cool Climates it has made its way into Tasmania but the weirdest planting of all is in the Hunter Valley a place not known for its cool weather and to tell you what it’s thriving.

Hart & Hunter Grüner Veltliner is one of my personal favourites Aromatic, Bone Dry the way I think they should be but that doesn’t mean that some others aren’t doing cool shit with it.

Comyns & Co Sparkling Grüner Veltliner  POPSY is worth checking out especially if you are a fan of all things bubbly.

Wren Wines Off-Dry Grüner Veltliner a little bit sweeter up front then what you would traditionally see from this variety but worth having a look at.

How do I pronounce Grüner Veltliner ??

It’s not as hard as it looks grew-ner velt-LEE-ner.
