About

The Grosset Springvale Riesling is a top example of Watervale Riesling, one of the premium sub-regions of the Clare Valley.

The Springvale is known to be the more approachable of the two dry Grosset Rieslings, a little softer in fruit and floral in aromatic profile than the racier Polish Hill. Though no slouch in the cellar, Springvale tends to offer supreme early drinking as well as the promise of more in the coming decade.

The 2016 release has received a slew of rave reviews, including 97 points from Huon Hooke, 96 from James Halliday and 94 from Mike Bennie, James Halliday declaring it “As good as any Grosset Springvale Riesling of the past decade…“

Carefully crafted by one of the country’s most incisive wine minds, this is a stunning release.

What It Tastes Like

96 points “As good as any Grosset Springvale Riesling of the past decade, with beautifully balanced and very expressive lime juice fruit and crystalline acidity flowing through the gloriously long palate. Drink now or soonish if you value freshness, in 5-10 years if you value complexity.”

  • James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
