About this Wine
Longview is one of the first vineyards in Australia to plant Grüner Veltliner.
KÜHL – the German word for cool – is named to reflect the cool-climate of the Adelaide Hills and Longview’s progressive ethos. A remarkably versatile variety, Grüner can be made young and light or rich and unctuous. The KÜHL lands somewhere in the middle. Initial aromas of grapefruit and celery progress to a palate of spicy radish and golden delicious apple, with crunchy acidity and white pepper overtones.
“At this young stage of its life this is bursting out of the glass with fresh citrus aromatics and a hint of juniper. On the tongue it’s all crunchy green pear and a lick of grippy dryness that makes you suddenly crave a plate of rice paper rolls.”
Max Allen, Gourmet Traveller Wine
About the Winery
Longview is a stunning, family-owned Adelaide Hills single vineyard located just outside the historic township of Macclesfield. Set on undulating slopes reminiscent of old world estates but with a clear Australian accent, it has quickly established itself as one of the most awarded vineyards in the region since its first vintage in 2001.
The original vineyards are now 20yr+ in age although plantings of the 'alternative varieties' (Barbera, Gruner Veltliner, Pinot Grigio) are somewhat younger. Winemaking is overseen by Ben Glaetzer in close consultation with owners Peter and Mark Saturno.
