Riesling, Polish Hill, Grosset, Clare Valley, Australia 2016
This outstanding vintage surprises with lemon blossom aromas bursting from the glass. Supple and round on the palate, it gives a delightful mouthfeel before the more characteristic power and tight, steely structure kicks in reminding you that this is Polish Hill.
The primary flavours are more evident than is often the case with wonderfully pure lime juice and lemongrass before a finish that has a surprising softness. Refreshingly dry, with vibrant cleansing acidity and some shaley minerality on a finish of remarkable persistence and length.
Our friends over in the States consider this estate to be one of ‘25 Great Vineyards of the World’ (Wine and Spirit Magazine, USA).
