2021 Ovum Gruner Veltliner

$40.00

Grüner is one of those grapes that has really had to fight for its seat at the table of beloved varietals. Once seen as the lesser stepsibling to Riesling’s golden-child brilliance, on the global scene it is now surely beyond question that any sommelier worth their title would present a list without at least one fine example. Australia, though, still struggles to properly give this exciting Austrian beauty her own lane, frequently pushing her down a path of rasping, Riesling-esque austerity. Not here. Ovum – so named for our concrete egg-shaped fermenter – is floral, fresh and spiced opening to plush ripe rockmelons. Whole bunches and skin fermentation and a conscious decision not to release early ensure layers of weight and texture, similar to how we would handle a Chardonnay. Drink with something (or someone) rich and sumptuous.
