Waimea Gruner Veltliner, Nelson
Situated just around the north coast from New Zealand's Marlborough, Nelson sets itself apart from its counterpart by being comprised solely of family owned wineries. Waimea Estate is no exception. Established in 1993 by Trevor Bolitho and his wife Robyn, the boutique estate is comprised of 140 hectares of vineyards as well as long-term contract growers managed by their son Ben, head viticulturist. Steven Spurrier describes the region as 'home to New Zealand's finest aromatic wines,' where ancient free-draining stony loam river plains, moderate maritime influence and protective phalanx of hills create the perfect terroir to produce 'an evenly pitched' range of varietal wines.
The nose of this wine has alluring florals, cardamom and baked white nectarines slathered in vanilla custard! The palate is at once fleshy and savoury, overlaid with characters seen on the nose. On the finish minerality, spice and a splosh of seawater intertwine creating a long and interesting finish.
An excellent and versatile food wine - particularly good with fresh oysters - experiment and enjoy!
