Grosset Springvale Riesling 2017

  • Grosset Springvale Riesling 2017

    The ‘Springvale’ also surprises, being more intensely primal than it is in most vintages. It entices with lime and lemon blossom aromas. There’s layer after layer of mouth-puckering lime juice flavours, tight structure, spine-tingling acidity and shaley minerally notes that linger. It’s an outstanding ‘Springvale’, fine, intense, pure, minerally and dry.

    ‘The Springvale vineyard was planted seventeen years ago. It is unique on two fronts: First, its odd shape accurately reflects the red loam-over-limestone profile below. Under this limestone is slate, its existence discovered by us only after the vine roots had reached that far. Second, the mix of riesling clones is rare. The result is a deliciously limey riesling with backbone.’ JG
