Grosset Springvale Watervale Riesling 2016

  • $40.00*

Situated off Springvale Road in one of the highest parts of Watervale, Grosset’s six hectare vineyard is on a gentle slope with red loamy soil over limestone. This is a single site white with 30 previous vintages of Grosset Watervale Riesling giving it a remarkable provenance.
Winemaker Notes

The Grosset Springvale Riesling shows some lime zest and lime blossom aromatics but there’s more restraint than usual, almost a shyness. The palate has intense lime juice flavour, a hint of lemon and more pronounced savoury minerality, schisty, shaley character than previous years. It’s tight, yet finely structured, with a taut, crisp, chalky minerality adding length to the ultra-dry finish. While this may be difficult to confirm, these intriguing qualities could be a reflection of the vines maturing, and the roots reaching the shale and slate below the limestone. This is an increasingly complex and serious riesling.
