Mount Macleod Gruner Veltliner 2021


Must be Gippsland's first Gruner?

With one eye on Australia's shifting culinary trends (away from animal protein) and the other on the marginal nature of his site, winemaker Mark Matthew decided to produce a lower-alcohol, savoury white from Austria's signature grape variety. The vineyard--organic from inception and surrounded on three sides by a small forest planted by Mark Matthews has three clones of Gr?ner covering just ove r three acres. The first crop was wild-fermented and raised mainly in stainless steel, with one neutral barrel in the mix to add breadth and complexity. It's a striking, savoury dry white with intense white pepper and green plum aromas and flavours, along with something exotic akin to guava or even rosewater. 

Organically Certified

As part of a widespread replanting program for both ecological and carbon-offset purposes, winemaker Mark Matthews has planted 14,000th trees on the property. Matthews’ attention to detail also runs through his packaging program which includes specially imported, post-consumer recycled paper for his labels (printers do not offer this product in Australia), recycled, unbleached paper for his cartons and the most sustainable glass he can find - bottles that are lighter and therefore have a lower carbon footprint. We could go on!
