Grosset Alea 2015 Riesling

The Alea comes from a narrow corridor of hard red rock with poor, orangey, red loam topsoil in the Grosset Rockwood Vineyard at Watervale. As the early fruit from the vineyard reminded Jeff of the great German rieslings, he decided to take a very different approach to the creation of Alea. The aim was to make a wine generous, succulent and long. With its first vintage in 2012, ‘Alea’ is the most recent of the Grosset rieslings, the result of three years of painstaking experimentation. This may be the Grosset white for a range of Asian dishes, or as an aperitif.
