A meticulously hand-tended vineyard matched by the same attention to detail in the winery, combined with an unusually cool, mild summer which heralded the earliest picking date in 35 years has resulted in a remarkable Grosset Polish Hill Riesling for Grosset. As you’d expect from this wine, it’s quite shy in its infancy, though still with distinct chalky, minerally aromatics. It is amazingly intense showing shaley minerally flavours with a hint of lime juice, tightly coiled around a steely backbone, persistent, deep, and long. The finish is linear, crisp and ultra dry yet with impeccable balance. While it will improve immeasurably with time in the bottle that balance gives it an approachability especially when consumed with a platter of natural oysters or a dish of poached whiting fillets with a squeeze of lime.
