Grosset Polish Hill 2015 Riesling

A meticulously hand-tended vineyard matched by the same attention to detail in the winery, combined with an unusually cool, mild summer which heralded the earliest picking date in 35 years has resulted in a remarkable Grosset Polish Hill Riesling for Grosset. As you’d expect from this wine, it’s quite shy in its infancy, though still with distinct chalky, minerally aromatics. It is amazingly intense showing shaley minerally flavours with a hint of lime juice, tightly coiled around a steely backbone, persistent, deep, and long. The finish is linear, crisp and ultra dry yet with impeccable balance. While it will improve immeasurably with time in the bottle that balance gives it an approachability especially when consumed with a platter of natural oysters or a dish of poached whiting fillets with a squeeze of lime.

Wine Spectator: "There's a floral backdrop of chamomile to the lithe lime, green apple and white pepper notes. Finds a way to be both powerful and subtle. Drink now through 2025." 91 Pts

Vinous / Antonio Galloni: "Pale, green-tinged yellow. High-pitched aromas of citrus fruits and flower, with an intense mineral overtone. Vibrant and linear on the palate, offering juicy lime and green apple flavors that deepen slowly through the mid-palate. Shows an emphatic stony character on the incisive, impressively long finish, leaving behind sappy citrus fruit and honeysuckle notes." 93 Pts

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: "The coy, youthfully mute 2015 Riesling Polish Hill has a mineral and wet pebble laced nose over notes of lime leaves, yuzu and green mango. The dry, light-bodied palate is positively charged with electric citrus fruit that carries straight through the very, very long finish. It really needs 4-5 years in bottle before it enters its drinking window." 94 Pts

James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion: "The floral bouquet is still to fully open its wings and fly, but the palate makes you spring to attention, its natural acid structure providing a superb framework for the fruit to clamber all over. As you come back again and again, the purity and balance of the flavours shine even more brightly, the length and balance immaculate, lime, lemon and a hint of apple exactly pitched. It is a finer wine than the joyous Springvale." 97 Pts
