CRFT K1 Grüner Veltliner
“This Austrian native is proving to be the superstar white variety of the Adelaide Hills”
100% Grüner Veltliner
Adelaide Hills, South Australia
now – 2026
Intensity & concentration from 2016 – grapefruit, ginger and star anise spice, hinting at freshly sliced radish with the always-present Kuitpo minerality and wet slate. Medium bodied, the palate shows sweet melon and white pepper. The mouthfeel is creamy with lingering yellow nectarine fruit.
Hand-picked in the cool of the morning. Gently whole-bunch pressed followed by wild fermentation on full solids. Fermented cool and slow in a stainless steel tank to preserve the purity of vineyard & fruit, followed by time on lees for mouthfeel.
Unfined and vegan.
Soil: Rocky, flinty ground with ironstone and sandstone, and orange clay loam.
