Launched in 2013 Blank Canvas is a Master of Science (Matt Thompson) and a Master of Wine (Sophie Parker-Thomson MW) pair crafting small batch wines from three famous New Zealand wine regions Marlborough, Hawke's Bay, and Central Otago.
Since their launch, their primary focus has been about highlighting the intimate details of each single vineyard expression. Today they celebrate nine exceptional and sustainable single vineyards, and these single vineyard wines are suitability matched to the right grape variety, whilst adhering to the right soil type, microclimate, and its qualities. The result - every wine tells a story, speaking of the exact place and time it is from.

Tasting Note: (from the winery)
Full-bodied richness, brilliant orange citrus, white pepper aromatics and a savoury, textural palate exemplify this single-vineyard Marlborough Gruner Veltliner. With the variety originally hailing from Austria, we feel our rendition takes on the best of European structure and New Zealand fruit opulence. The fruit was hand-picked from the McKee Vineyard in the Blind River subregion, gently pressed and fermented in both stainless steel and 500L French oak puncheons. It spent 11 months maturing on fine lees which has given increased texture and complexity. We have held the wine in bottle for four years prior to release and we’re confident this is a wine to cellar. We like to call it G.V. or Gruner - you can call it anything you like!

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and Low tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
