Wangolina A Series Grüner Veltilner 750ml 2019
Awards: 95 Points Halliday Wine Companion 2020
"19 was a hot, windy vintage, but the vines paid no attention. Two-thirds of the whole-bunch pressed juice was cool-fermented in stainless steel, one-third in ‘Egor', a ceramic egg, its slightly porous nature creating texture. This is a very high quality gruner. The texture on the back-palate is outstanding." - James Halliday

Juicy white peaches and apricots mingle with citrus, pear skin and floral notes. Nectarine skins, apricot with white radish and lime zest combine with a chalky minerality to create a textural, complex and refreshing wine.
This is our second vintage of Grüner Veltliner. The fruit was handpicked in March 2019 and whole bunch pressed for gentle juice extraction. A light settle and then 1/3 of the juice was transferred into ‘Egor’ the ceramic egg which was used for its slightly porous nature and ability to create a unique textural feel to the wine. The remaining juice was fermented cool in stainless steel to capture the fresh fruit flavour. All components were then combined for the final blend.
