Hahndorf Hill GRU Gruner Veltliner 2014

Larry Jacobs calls this GRU. I reckon it's more like James Bond, a man for all seasons. This is a wine that is sooo tasty and versatile. It's fresh with some texture, personality and it's dangerously smashable. With food or without, you see the bottom of the glass in no time.

This is the fifth vintage of the variety Larry has produced. Due to high yields, three separate harvests took place and each batch was handled differently. That is, different yeasts were used and a combination of cold, warm and wild fermentation took place.

A blend of the three batches, this wine exudes fresh fruits. Think of your fruit bowl and take a whiff. Green apples, pears and stone fruits. Down the hatch and it's more happiness with a little spicy edge and filling flavours. It's just damn tasty booze and you just want more. Isn't that what you look for in a top wine?

Get some in your glass. Very good.
