    Gru-what? It’s Gruner Veltliner (grew-ner velt-lee-ner) but you can call it Gru-vee for short.

    Gru-vee’s a grape native to Austria but in the last few years a few NZ winemakers have started dabbling with the variety. Jules first planted this one back in 2010 and just a couple of years later caught the eye of UK wine scribbler Matthew Jukes who called it “the finest non-Austrian Gruner I have tried to date.”

    A medium bodied, dry white that in her own words Jules describes as “a cool climate wine somewhere between an aromatic white and a Chardonnay.”

    Given a sweet as write up by wine scribblers in the NZ Herald, they called it a “gorgeous little groo-vee is tangy, crisp and packs a squeak of sunshine into these chilly afternoons“.

    If you’re gettin’ gru-vee at dinner time, this is a style that pairs oh so well with fresh seafood. There are some out there that reckon Gruner’s a better match to fresh oysters than Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – shhh, we didn’t just say that!
