2013 Blank Canvas, Marlborough Grüner Veltliner 12x75cl*
New Zealand / Malborough
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Fantastic with salmon fish cakes or freshly caught crab, cheese-based salads or pumpkin ravioli.
A wine of wonderful and pure aromatics, this Grüner Veltliner shows classic notes of mandarin and ripe peach with an underlying trace of white pepper. The oak featuring in this wine is only obvious if you are told about it – it is there to provide richness and weight to the mid-palate, which is why the producer chose large French oak puncheons to do the job. The result is a well-structured, luscious rendition of an Austrian classic.
