Grosset

Polish Hill Riesling
Clare Valley, South Australia

The Story

Grosset Polish Hill Riesling stands out as a defining style and champion for the modern day Australian wine aesthetic. Pure, exact and linear with superb depth and persistence, it expresses both integrity of vineyard site and a prodigious technical accuracy.

The riesling is comprised of three clones – two German and one rare local clone – that are harvested exclusively from the eighthectare, organically certified Polish Hill Vineyard in the Clare Valley. Located on a hard rock site, the gently sloping vineyard sits on silt and shallow shales over a thin crust of clay and gravel, on top of a bed of blue slate estimated to be 500 million years old.

Lean, austere and naturally balanced fruit is the result of vines struggling to draw nutrients, and producing small, thick skinned, yellow tinged berries.

The Winemaking

The vines are dry-grown on a modified ballerina trellising system, and completely hand tended and organically farmed. After destemming the fruit is split, with only freerun juice used. Cold settled and decanted into inert fermentation vessels, the wine is then settled on yeast lees for a few months for complexity and richness of flavour.

The Wine

The highly perfumed Grosset Polish Hill Riesling is typified by distinct lime and floral aromatics, resonating intensity and fine, indelible acid cut. This is a great Clare Valley riesling with superb regional definition that promises complexity and richness with age.
