Description

The Edens Road vineyard is in an extremely stony area where water and nutrient levels are low. This helps us to restrict the plants’ vigour and to crop at low levels. To further enhance the aromatics, leaves were removed to allow light penetration and air movement around the fruiting zone. The Edens Road vineyard is situated 15 km from the coast and is sheltered from the south by the Richmond Ranges. The ‘soil’ is a combination of rocks and boulders which is very hard on the farm equipment but vital for holding the warmth of Nelson’s sun – and ripening the Grüner Veltliner fruit. The 2017 vintage Grüner Veltliner is blended as a single vineyard parcel from the Edens Road vineyard on the Waimea Plains.

TASTING NOTES
Delicate florals and appealing ground almond characters on the palate, with hints of honeydew melon and chai. A clean mineral finish runs through the length, leaving a lasting impression.

FOOD PAIRING
Especially good with Vietnamese food particularly summer rolls and noodle salads. Fried foods such as veal schnitzel or fish and chips or even fried chicken. Fresh cheeses like goats cheese, young pecorino or mozzarella
