Grosset Springvale Riesling 2020
Langton Classification VII: Rated ‘Excellent’
Wine Ark: One of Australia’s ‘Ten Most Collected White Wines’
Erin Larkin, erinlarkin.com.au, August 2020
Lime zest, pith, limestone and white pepper. Freshly crushed granny smith apple (skin on) and brine in there too. There is a salty lick that forms the backbone of acid that runs through the very core of this wine. It doesn’t flow in the order I expect it to, which takes nothing away from it, it just makes it unique. Savoury, salty and tight but underpinned by fleshy generosity… it’s like a firm steel structure thrown onto a plush down-filled coverlet… enduring, stupendous length of flavour – I can taste it long after it is gone. Saline and lingering. Great length of flavour. Powerhouse. 96 points.
