FRESH, DRY WHITES

Fresh, dry whites, over £10 - POLISH HILL, Grosset. Clare Valley, Australia

2013 POLISH HILL RIESLING, Grosset. Clare Valley, Australia

Bin: 1130
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Established in 1981, the winery is situated in the historic township of Auburn at the southern tip of the Clare Valley, 100 kilometres north of Adelaide.
Polish Hill vineyard is located at the foot of Mt Horrocks, at 460m, on rocky soils which produce low yields but high quality
Grape Variety: 100% Riesling, fermented very simply in stainless steel - no tricks!
Producer: As he celebrates his thirtieth vintage in 2010, Jeffrey Grosset is acknowledged as the master of Aussie Riesling. Most famous for this, the 'Polish Hill', which always needs several years to reach maturity. We also list his most drinkable and approachable wine, the 'Springvale' Watervale Riesling
Cellar Potential: Drinkable young but can age for 20 years
Press Reviews: Jamie Goode (www.wineanorak.com) 94 pts - "Very fine and fresh; limey and precise. There’s a bit of grapefruit, too. Lean, fresh, dry and so mineral this has lovely weight. Lively, bright and with great acidity, it avoids being austere. Less showy than the Springvale, but with more substance and mineral depth, and a bit more concentration."
James Halliday 98 pts - "Light straw-green; has a degree of perfumed fragrance that immediately sets it apart from the other '13 Clare Valley rieslings, and a thrilling burst of hyper-intense lime/slate fruit. Despite these pyrotechnics, the wine has the elegance of the finest china. Yet another example of the riesling mastery of Jeffrey Grosset."
