    This is an outstanding Springvale Riesling. Intense citrus aromatics that linger; the palate is taut, even coiled, and powered by intense lemon and lime pith and enticing florals that persist; while the finish is long, zesty, and bone dry. For all its mouth-puckering intensity, there is balance, a touch of restraint, satisfying finesse and an immediacy that appeals.

    Producer

    Grosset is everything good about the wine industry, their place in Clare Valley history, their philosophy on winemaking, the vision they carry for the next generation and of course wines themselves are what every winery wishes they could strive for. Founder Jeffrey Grosset established Grosset in 1981, it's still proudly a family run operation, focusing on making wines with 'pure expressions of variety and place' (his words, not ours). The family and team carefully have tended the four estate-owned vineyards to achieve Certified Organic ‘A-Grade’ status, a feat that says much about themselves as the land custodians as it does about the quality of the wines. They align this care and attention of the vineyard with non-interventional winemaking practices bottling the finished wines without filtration aids or fining agents at the winery that Jeffrey designed himself. World class Riesling makes up 70 percent of their entire 11,000-case production each year. Less than 25% makes it overseas - lucky for us. Something that sets Grosset apart is the desire to always do the right thing, by the land, by the wine and simply as humans. They've taken their success, experience and expertise to set up the Grosset Gaia Fund, a fund that invests in sustainable organisations with positive environmental impacts alongside Arts, Community and Health projects.

    Region

    South Australia’s Clare Valley, besides being one of Australia’s prettiest wine regions, is ground-zero for Riesling and a large selection of the countries finest examples. Approximately 120km north of Adelaide, the Clare Valley boasts a great diversity of soil types and a number of famous sub-regions along its length such as Polish Hill River, Watervale, Leasingham, Sevenhill and the Skillogalee Valley. Clare Valley Riesling is vivid in its purity, always having a reputation for being very precise and driven, though in recent times, we are seeing some producers play with skin contact and seasoned oak adding to the regions interest. It isn’t only white varieties that shine in the Clare with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz do particularly well and it is the home of the stellar red wines of Australian wine royalty, Wendouree. Local Knowledge: The breakfast ramen at ‘`Seed’ in Clare with a glass of German Kabinett Riesling is a stroke of genius.

    This leans on the talc and the chalk before it hits the pedals of citrus and apple. It boasts both delicacy and intensity though at this early stage it’s still working out the finish; it’s long without having write-home length. There’s almost a suggestion of grapefruit here or at least of citrus rind; in any case it’s tucked neatly into the overall flow.
