Grüner V5 2021


Tasting Notes

Paracombe Grüner V5 heralds an innovative new wine style from Paracombe Wines. An aromatic white blend, this wine is a gathering of five white grape varieties.

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 however has superb aging potential with its fine acidity and gentle textures.

A food friendly wine, try it with Asian inspired cuisine.

What the reviewers are saying

Restrained on the nose, with flashes of stone fruit and red apple. This wine is a very well-judged blend of five varieties with Gruner Veltliner and Pinot Gris doing most of the heavy lifting. The palate is quite juicy with lovely flashes of slate minerality and gentle texture. A beautifully balanced blend – and a perfect lunch companion. Rob Geddes MW
