Today I’m Loving
Lime Rock Central Hawke’s Bay Grüner Veltliner 2016 $28 5 stars
“Vitecologists” Rosie Butler and her husband Rodger Tynan have been quietly coaxing this local version of Austrian awesomeness into a bottle for the last 5 years and it just keeps getting better. Pronounced ‘Grooner Felt-Leener’, it’s a deliciously dry wine, gushing gorgeous citrus and mineral-edged vitality, white pepper, summer flowers, quince and apple characters too. It also scooped the Trophy for ‘Premium White’s’ at the 2016 Hawke’s Bay Wine Awards.
