Pike & Joyce 2015 "Separe" Gruner Veltliner

With its sweet/savoury fruit characters and brisk, attractive acidity, the Austrian grape variety gruner veltliner is an ideal choice for enjoyment during the Australian summer. It is starting to build a cult following thanks to the efforts of several Adelaide Hills producers and wines of this quality will surely see it soon gain mainstream status. Think crisp apple and ripe pear notes, gentle spice hints and a long, lean backbone with flinty minerality. A wine for enjoying young and well-chilled, with a second bottle on standby. It is well worth taking a vinous road less travelled to try this. $28.
