O'Leary Walker Gruner Veltliner 2015
This 2015 is the first Gruner release and a 'project wine' from O'Leary Walker although I believe the 2016 is the first to hit retail land. I found this sample lying at the back of a pile - oops.
From a Watervale vineyard planted in 2014, things start of well with enticing aromas spilling from the glass. White flowers, lime leaf, sour apple and something a bit creamy. It's a bit thin in the mouth - a let down from what I anticipated from the aromas. Young vines are at play here I suggest. I'd be interested to see how the 2016 looks.
