95 Points | Top 100 Wines of 2020 - James Halliday
Hahndorf Hill 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 2020 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.
"95 Points. Small bunches started the ball rolling for a wine with an excellent mouthfeel and a faint white pepper varietal marker. The length and drive on the finish give the wine serious gravitas. Attention to vinification detail is its own reward. $24. 13% alc. Drink by 2023. Screwcap" - James Halliday, Halliday Top 100 Wines 2020.
