Description

BK Wines Ovum Grüner Veltliner 2021

BK Wines Ovum Grüner Veltliner is floral, fresh and spiced. The medium-bodied and dry palate has a tart acidity and exciting flavours. Ripe lemon citrus, lime leaf, gentle stone fruit and plush ripe rock melon flavours. There's layers of weight and texture in this wine, so drink it with something (or someone) rich and sumptuous.

Fun Fact: Grüner is one of those grapes that has really had to fight for its seat at the table of beloved varietals. Once seen as the lesser stepsibling to Riesling’s golden-child brilliance, on the global scene it is now surely beyond question that any sommelier worth their title would present a list without at least one fine example. Australia, though, still struggles to properly give this exciting Austrian beauty her own lane, frequently pushing her down a path of rasping, Riesling-esque austerity. Not here.

100% Grüner Veltliner. The fruit comes from sites on the Adelaide Hills, Australia.

50% whole bunch fermentation, 50% fermentation in barrel. The wine goes through a pressing before resting on lees in concrete egg-shaped fermenters called 'ovum'.
