The Grosset ‘Polish Hill’ Clare Valley Riesling has floral aromas of violets, lavender and lime blossom. The palate is powerful, with intense flavours of lime juice and a tight, linear structure. There are hints of schist and a crisp acidity on the long finish.

Origin

The eight hectare Polish Hill vineyard (ACO certified organic) is planted at 460 metres altitude and just five kilometres from Springvale. The low fertility soils of this hard rock site are composed of silt and shallow shales over a thin crust of clay and gravel. The vines have to work harder than those at Springvale and so produce small, thick-skinned berries with bunches weighing just 100 grams.

Producer

Jeffrey Grosset established his winery in 1981 in the historic township of Auburn, Clare Valley, 100 kilometres north of Adelaide. The winery is stylish and functional and reflects the attention to detail that extends to the Grosset estate-owned vineyards and winemaking. Jeff is best known for his Rieslings which have shown a consistency of style and quality, making this one of Australia’s greatest wineries. By combining a disciplined approach and decades of experience, Grosset consistently achieves the purest expression of variety and place.

Grape Variety

100% Riesling.

The organic grapes were hand harvested and delivered promptly to the winery in small parcels, where they were crushed and destemmed. The fruit was then gently pressed and the free run juice was inoculated with neutral yeasts to preserve the natural expression of the vineyard in the final wine. Fermentation lasted two weeks and took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks in separate batches according to clone and vine age before blending and bottling.

Food Match

Enough acidity to cope with oysters but if you like crisp wines you really can drink it on its own (a bit of a sin but you can). It would do wonders for a baked trout or a beetroot risotto with goats cheese.

    This was really very nice, I have not drunk much white wine before but wanted to try some. I relied on the winetrust100 MWS rating and as usual this turned out to be a good move. This wine is very crisp and refreshing and everyone who tried it was impressed.
