Served blind by me at Sue Bell’s dinner party with Bruce Redman. After being tricked by Sue all week with blind tastings at the winery I was determined to get square. She was up to the task getting just the state wrong. Once I said Adelaide Hills she knew it was a Gruner. Hahndorf Hill are acknowledged as the best producers of Gruner in Australia. Taking its lead from the GV’s of Austria’s Kamptal region. Grapefruit, Citrus and stone fruit. A multi award winner on the Australian Show circuit.

This wine revealed some nice secrets. I did not know it had a bit of a fizz - pleasant surprise. I knew it would have a citrus base but did not know there would be a bit of pear and a whisper of yeast. Enjoyed the unexpected! — a month ago
Kelly liked it as a white option - $10 makes it a real deal - very drinkable. Crisp with a Sauvignon Blanc sort of taste. Citrusy. 1st wine from the Langley Pool wine tasting and the best of the four. — 2 days ago
Medium intense, youthful somwhat closed but very concentrated aromas with an unleashes complexity. White pear, yellow peaches, honey dew melon, herbs and a prominent wet stone minerality.
More forward on the palate with a high acidity, medium well integrated alcohol in a medium + full body, plenty of extract and high flavour intensity driven by a tactile and near savoury, salty spine that mingles with ripe but fresh fruit profile with characters of blood orange, pears and white peach. Good fatigue across the mid palate thorugh a solid finish.

Another couple of years of bottle time. Aging beautifully, been a few years since the last bottle. Real depth, still bright acidity, great mineral finish. Eyes closed I really would have thought this was a Riesling though. Has that plastic hose aspect that I really like in Riesling, though less oily and brighter. — 10 days ago
Refreshing, crisp, green aroma and initial flavor. Hard to identify tiny the fruit, but maybe a hint of green onion and good amount of acid. Nice with a rich meal — 3 days ago
