Hahndorf Hill of the Adelaide Hills are one of the pioneers of Gruner Veltliner in Australia and a driving force behind the rising popularity of this native Austrian variety locally. The 2021 Hahndorf Hill 'White Mischief' Gruner Veltliner is another top class example of Australian Gruner Veltliner.
This offers typically lifted aromatics with both the nose and palate brimming with complex and vibrant citrus, spice, ruby grapefruit, stone fruit and exotic tropicals. These long and intense flavours are all held together and balanced by a juicy acidity and subtle textural undertones.
"Wine Of The Week. Larry Jacobs and Marc Dobson at Hahndorf Hill in the Adelaide Hills are the Australian trendsetters when it comes to the Austrian white wine variety gruner veltliner, making several different styles from the aromatic variety. This is a brand-new release of their "New World" style of gruner; fresh, vibrant and full of the joys of youth. Exuberant aromatics are followed up by a panoply of different fruit flavours from guava to grapefruit, a dry finish and juicy acidity, along with textural interest and intensity. This is dangerously drinkable, both on its own and paired with dishes ranging from Thai stir fries to fish and chips. $25"- Winsor Dobbin, wdwineoftheweek.blogspot.com.
"A light-yellow hue with a green tinge at the rim. Passionfruit and lemon balm aromatics. Good concentration of fruit on entry giving a sense of medium-bodied weight, with both bright acidity and a hint of phenolics to match it. A lovely length with a savoury dryness at the finish. (Screwcap). 91 Points"- Stuart Knox, The Real Review.
