"Hand-picked in ideal condition and ripeness on the 18th of April from our biodynamic Demeter certified Bendigo Estate vineyard; planted in 1998, with a vine density of 5,000 plants per hectare. The soils on the beautiful north facing slope are Waenga fine sandy loam and Letts steepland with an elevation from 217 – 264 metres, on 44.55° south. Whole punch pressed, free run juice only. Indigenous yeast ferment in stainless steel tank to dryness. Ageing on lees for 11 months.
Palest yellow with a bouquet of strong lemon, apricot and pepper. The palate shows a very rich yet strict acidity and dry demeanour – rather Austrian-like."

5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2020 Vintage)
"It's appropriate that Austrian-born founder of Quartz Reef, Rudi Bauer, should make a wine from Austria's most productive grape variety. Delicious grüner veltliner with wet slate-mineral, citrus and floral flavours supported by soft, seductive acidity and an ethereal texture."
