GROSSET Polish Hill Riesling, Clare Valley 2014

Grosset Polish Hill Riesling is top of Australia's aromatic wine genre. The wines have incredible perfume and fruit purity, the lime, floral fruit profile is balanced by a fine indelible cut of acidity. An uncomplicated winemaking approach and a focus on “purity of fruit” are essential philosophical elements. After destemming “the small thick-skinned yellow-tinged berries are simply split with only the free run juice being used”. After cold-settling at 2°C, the slightly hazy juice is decanted into inert fermentation vessels “to ensure purity of fruit expression” during vinification. Once the ferment is completed the wine is allowed to settle on yeast lees for a few months to achieve complexity and richness of flavour, but without losing “the inherent fruit characters and integrity of the terroir."Polish Hill Riesling has a great track record for cellaring, maintaining a lovely freshness and beauty throughout its life.

Region Clare Valley

The Clare Valley

The Clare Valley is located two hours north of Adelaide in the Mount Lofty ranges. The region was settled by John Horrocks who encouraged his servant James Green to plant the first vines in 1842. Climate in the Clare Valley is continental with hot summers, cold winters and low rainfall that necessitates supplementary irrigation. Soils in the valley are predominantly red brown loams over shale, permitting excellent drainage. Many of the best vineyards are located at higher elevations of 400-500m on sites that take advantage of the cool breezes that funnel up the corrugation of hills from the south. The Clare Valley is renowned for its zesty fruit-pure Rieslings particularly from the sub-regions of Polish Hill and Watervale. The region also produces intense age-worthy sturdy reds from Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

From first release, Grosset’s utterly exquisite Polish Hill and Springvale Rieslings have led the charge in the Clare Valley Riesling renaissance. Jeffrey Grosset is one of Australia’s most significant winemakers.The fame of Clare Valley Riesling is hinged on his vision splendid. As one of the leading proponents of screw cap closures, his wines have hugely benefited from this technology. Alongside his flagship Rieslings, Grosset also produces several other compelling wines including Semillon, Chardonnay and a Cabernet blend named Gaia.
