Grosset Wines philosophy has remained steadfast over thirty years. The emphasis is on purity of fruit. The organically managed vineyards are hand tended, and each bunch of grapes is harvested at optimum ripeness. The winemaking process is gentle and uncomplicated. With dedication, discipline and the application of knowledge garnered through decades of experience, the result is the finest expression of variety and place.
The significantly later harvest has produced an extraordinary ‘Polish Hill’. Voluminous floral aromatics, with hints of talc and lavender, produce an exuberant youthfulness that gives vitality to a palate fleshed out by concentrated lime juice. The tight structure is there without the steeliness; controlled power, intensity and that characteristic ultra-dry character that thrills on the finish.
Quite a delicate expression but not without drive, energy and velocity. It’s pretty in floral notes, lime-lime blossom scents. Succulent, just a kiss of flinty-chalkiness to texture, bristling with tangy acidity, long, fine, and elegant feeling. A little out of step for typical Springvale, but delightful in its way. Crackling mineral character throughout. Crystalline, classy riesling. Drink: To 2030+; Rating: 94 Points; Mike Bennie; Wine Front
Light straw hue. Lovely fresh aromas of lemon pith, candlewax and creamy notes. The palate is crisp and lively with intense lime and lemon fruit flavour and balanced refreshing acidity. A superb young riesling. The intensity and crystalline clarity in both aroma and flavour is outstanding. It's shaping as one of the greatest Polish Hill rieslings ever.

This is a ravishing riesling of the highest order, X-factor multiplied. Throw up any part (flesh, juice, skin, pith) of lime or lemons of any kind, add ethereal acidity and marvel at the elegance and length of the palate. Jeffrey Grosset is the undisputed king of the Clare Valley.
