It’s gorgeously ripe and perfumed on the nose showing apricot, rockmelon, citrus peel and subtle spice notes, followed by a succulent palate delivering excellent fruit intensity and persistency. Generously textured and brilliantly structured with plenty of tasty flavours. At its best: now to 2024.

Winemaker Notes

Native to Austria just like Arnold Schwarzenegger, our Grüner Veltliner has been turning heads since we came up with the crazy idea to produce this varietal in NZ. And just like Arnie and his pronounciation of ‘California’, you’re gonna need help saying this one: ‘GREW-ner Velt-LEEN-er’. Okay? ‘We’ll be back’ with this one (sorry about that last bit)!

Richly floral and inviting, the Landmark Grüner Veltliner has notes of ripe stone fruit and lemon zest. The palate is beautifully weighted and rounded, texturally appealing with juicy acidity, making it super appealing.

Grüner Veltliner is crisp and a perfect palate cleanser for richly flavored foods. While Grüner wines pair with classic Austrian dishes like sautéed kidneys, its newfound glory is with Asian spices. It’s also one of the few still wines that hold up against vegetable fare. Generally the more spark and flavour in your dish, the better our Grüner plays.
