About The Wine

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 2017 release is excellent. The full spectrum of classic flavours that you expect from the area. It's dry, mineral-charged, limey and yet deliciously approachable.

Mike Bennie dubbed it a "Crystalline, classy riesling." which is nothing short of what you would expect from Grosset in a top vintage like 2017. Carefully crafted by one of the country's most incisive wine minds, this is a stunning release.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Quite a delicate expression but not without drive, energy and velocity. It’s pretty in floral notes, lime-lime blossom scents, a touch of flinty mineral character. Quite succulent, just a kiss of flinty-chalkiness to texture, bristling with tangy acidity, long, fine, and elegant feeling. A little out of step for typical Springvale, but delightful in its way. Crackling mineral character throughout. Crystalline, classy riesling." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

‘The Springvale vineyard was planted seventeen years ago. It is unique on two fronts: First, its odd shape accurately reflects the red loam-over-limestone profile below. Under this limestone is slate, its existence discovered by us only after the vine roots had reached that far.

Second, the mix of riesling clones is rare. The result is a deliciously limey riesling with backbone.’ JG
