Paracombe GV5 heralds an innovative new wine style from Paracombe Wines. An aromatic white blend, this wine is a gathering of five white grape varieties. Grüner Veltliner 57%, Riesling 26%, Pinot Gris 9%, Pinot Blanc 5% and Gewürztraminer 3%.
Grapes were harvested mid-February from the cool southern slope of Paul and Kathy Drogemuller’s family vineyard at Paracombe and select specialist sites in the Adelaide Hills.
Pale straw in colour, the bouquet is lifted and striking with rose floral and fruity notes of melon and citrus. The palate is crisp, fresh and pure with hints of nutmeg, ginger and minerality. This wine will drink well young, but has superb aging potential with its fine acidity and gentle textures.
