The Details

In a Nutshell

Delicately floral with citrus notes.

Tasting Notes

Pale straw in colour. Delicate aromas of orange blossom, citrus and stone fruit blend with hints of sweet floral honeysuckle. The Grüner Veltliner is a very textural wine. Flavours of white peach mingle well with subtle peppery spice notes. Mineral complexity, which is so reflective of the Blind River sub region, gives this wine a clean and crisp appeal. The balance of the fruit, acidity and phenolics work very well together and lead to a long dry finish.

Production Notes

Winemakers Matt Thomson and Fiona Turner were looking for a cool climate variety with striking aromatic qualities supported by firm acid structure to add to the Tinpot Hut range. They soon became convinced of the potential for Grüner Veltliner in Marlborough and convinced two local growers to plant a few rows. The grapes for this single vineyard wine were grown by the McKee family in the Blind River sub-region of the Awatere Valley.

Fiona is aiming for an aromatic, fruit forward style with particular emphasis on managing the potentially hard phenolics. The grapes were hand-picked and immediately transported to the winery where they were treated gently with minimal skin contact. Precise press-cuts ensured that only the free run, less phenolic juice was used in the finished wine. After settling, the juice was fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures to retain fruit character and freshness.

Producer - Tinpot Hut

Now an established favourite, Fiona Turner’s Tinpot Hut began in 2003 when Fiona and husband Hamish established their own 50 acre vineyard in the emerging sub-region of Blind River, just south of Marlborough‘s Awatere Valley – one of the founding properties in the area.  The original Tinpot Hut is an historic mustering hut nestled high in the hills of Marlborough.
