The Adelaide Hills is leading the charge and stamping their claim to be the premier location for gruner veltliner production. Before you even pick up your glass of this gruner from the table, aromatics will make their way to your nose. It is springtime in a glass. Imagine walking through a sunshine drenched garden, complete with all the white flowers, green herbs and freshly watered grasses. The palate fills out with notes of white peach, white pepper, subtle honey blossom and fleshy green fruit. If you’re looking to broaden your palate and love riesling, pinot grigio or chenin blanc, then there should definitely be some gruner veltliner on your wine rack and we of the Fo’ recommend you set the bar high and start with this.

Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
