Grosset Springvale Riesling 2020

‘There are two aspects of this wine that make it unique. It’s from our Springvale Vineyard which we planted twenty years ago exclusively on red loam-over-limestone. Under this limestone is Mintaro slate, so it’s a classic ‘soft rock’ site but underpinned by slate. That’s unusual.  Also, the mix of riesling clones is rare. The result is a deliciously limey riesling with backbone.’ Jeffrey Grosset

The low yields of the 2020 vintage may have reduced the availability of the Grosset Springvale but not its accessibility. It has bright, fresh aromas of lemon drop and lemon meringue aromatics. There’s a soft fleshiness in the mouth with intense and concentrated lemon and lemon curd flavours with a hint of kaffir lime. Deliciously reflecting both site and season, it is a complete wine with a finish that is supple, fine and extremely long.
