This Australian Riesling from Grosset is truly exceptional, as rated by leading authority on Australian wine, Langton’s – the only Riesling to receive their highest classification! With Chinese New Year around the corner, what better way to celebrate than with this near perfect wine? A great match with more delicate, lightly spiced Chinese cuisine – particularly dim sum and stir-fry vegetables. A wine of real beauty, and a real treat!
|2014 Grosset ‘Polish Hill’ Clare Valley Riesling, Australia
Grosset is an independent winery established in the south of the Clare Valley region. Jeffrey Grosset, highly respected founder and current owner, is internationally recognised by the likes of Decanter as one of the ‘Top 10 White Winemakers’. Production is small and focused – capped at 11,000 cases of 7 premium wines annually – with grapes sourced from their 4 vineyards further north in the heart of the Clare Valley.
97 Points: Sarah Ahmed, Decanter Magazine “From slate soils, this is a firm, tightly coiled mineral style with a racy lemon nose and palate. Arresting acidity; bottled electricity.”
17.5 Points: Jancis Robinson, MW
