K1 Gruner Veltliner Adelaide Hills, 2019

Adelaide Hills

Grape Variety

Gruner Veltliner

Predominantly grown in Hungary and the Czech Republic, Grüner Veltliner has found a new home in the cool southern Adelaide Hills. Geoff planted 1.7 hectacres at Kuitpo in 2010. The 2019 K1 is lightly fragranced with fresh apples and fennel aromas. The palate is rich and structured with a pithy mineral finish, adding length. Geoff has always experimented growing more niche varietals, and this is a fine alternative. After pressing, 20% of the juice was racked and fermented in second and third-use barrels previously used for Chardonnay and the balance fermented in tanks. After experimenting last year, this year he chose to ferment using two Chardonnay yeasts.
