Grosset Springvale Riesling 2017 ~ Clare Valley, South Australia (Certified Organic, Vegan)
94/100 the Wine Front
96/100 Toni Paterson
Langton Classification VI: Rated ‘Outstanding’
Wine Ark: one of Australia’s ‘Five Most Collected White Wines’
Toni Paterson: "Exquisite, pure citrus aromas. The palate is wildly intense with perfectly integrated acidity and palate softness. There is a pleasing tang at the front, followed by a focused, gently textural, sweet-lemon middle. The mineral core running through the wine is simply captivating. Magic."
Tony Love, The Source SA "The king of Clare’s rieslings have become benchmarks, both domestically and internationally… (Springvale) has often played bridesmaid to a Polish Hill sibling but here there might just be a dead-heat, everything about this in its florals, cut lime fruits, tingling acidity and minerally textures fusing seamlessly. It’s endlessly pleasurable but do try the Polish Hill as well. 5 Stars.
