Gruner Veltliner in the Adelaide Hills

Hahndorf Hill Winery in the Adelaide Hills
I thought you may be interested to know that here at Hahndorf Hill Winery we have imported three clones of Gruner Veltliner.
Our first (small) production is expected in 2010. We think this grape could have a big future in the Adelaide Hills because of our region's significant diurnal variation.
Growers in Marlborough are also beginning to plant Gruner Veltliner, as this food-friendly grape is well poised to take over as a new "fashionable white" should Sauvignon Blanc start to fade in popularity.
