|Aroma & Palate||Apple and lime juices, crystalline minerality|
|Style||Bright & balanced|
The first Gru-V we’ve featured in years, and we’re happy to see the grapes’ big comeback to the club is such an elegant offering! Fresh, and balanced like a tightrope act - there’s minerality, salinity, some floral and herbaceous notes, an apple-juice backbone and raspberry pucker to the acidity.
From The Winemaker
Pale, but attractive bright green hue. Enticing floral intensity of Nashi pear and white pepper spice, surrounded by the freshness of citrus and stone fruits. A texturally appealing palate, with hints of grapefruit complexed with pear and stone fruits characters. The wine focuses on structure and mouthfeel as much as these flavours and finishes with a persistent citrus freshness.
About the Winery
Named for Cape Barren Island (home of the implacably aggressive Cape Barren goose with its highlighter-pen nose, shown on the winery's labels) but based in McLaren Vale. Wines sourced from the operation's old old-growth vines or respected contacts in the Adelaide Hills and winemaking overseen by Rob Dundon, formerly of Hardy Wines, a long-time McLaren Vale fanatic who became owner and head winemaker in 2009.
