Stefano Lubiana 2014 Gruner Veltliner

Steve Lubiana loves experimenting with Austrian varieties, and this is one of the first commercial releases of gruner veltliner in Tasmania (Joe Holyman also has some planted at Stoney Rise in the Tamar). Farmed biodynamically at Granton, north of Hobart, this is a fascinating take on the grape variety and has spent time in Austrian oak casks to add depth and texture. The young vines are not, as yet, producing wines that are particularly varietal but this is a very good drink that would match well with poultry or game dishes like pheasant or partridge. One of a number of outstanding wines in the Lubiana range. $38.
