Grosset Polish Hill Riesling 2021
Grosset's eight hectare 'Polish Hill' organic vineyard 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. Made from only the finest free run juice the Polish Hill Riesling displays aromas of lavender, herbs, lime and a hint of chalk. Framed by a pure natural acidity, the concentrated palate is pure lime juice and lemon pith with a characteristic shaley minerality. Tight, fine and steely with a long, bone dry finish.
