5 Stars Winery - James Halliday
5 Stars - WineState Magazine (2020)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "This wine is lively, tense and crisply acid on the palate.....Bright light-mid yellow colour with a similarly forward-developed bouquet, showing lime, quince-paste, apricot aromas and subtle hints of toast."

Robert Parker "This is routinely a smart wine—austere and lean on release but with brilliant poise and line. This cooler-vintage 2021 Angevin Riesling makes not exception to that rule, with notes of lemon oil, Granny Smith apples, brine and fleshy citrus. Very good indeed." (2021 vintage)

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "A lovely wine; chalky, mineral, saline...It's gratifying tasting wines that give you more as you pay more ... it's sort of how we hope it would be (and not the other way around!). This has all the line and austerity of the Three Lions Riesling, but with additional layers of plump fruit and cushioned phenolics. It remains true to it regional roots, taut and coiled, but it also begins to unfurl and open as it stays in the mouth." (2021 vintage)

Gabrielle Poy, The Real Review "..A delicious dry riesling that will age well....Honey and lime leaf aromas lead into a racy dry palate. There's lots of flesh on the bones providing great flavours and carry. This is alive and enticing on the palate, with rapier-like acidity and great intensity.(2021 vintage)

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "Quite an astoundingly beautiful and pure wine of poise, line and length." (2020 vintage)

Sam Kim "It's exquisitely styled, showing Granny Smith apple, lime cordial and white flesh nectarine notes on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that delivers outstanding fruit purity and poise. Refined and stylish with a graceful future ahead." (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "This has striking purity and such fresh citrus-fruit aromas, as well as some savory, mineral notes. The palate is sleekly driven by brisk acidity that carries fresh lime-juice flavor. Bang! Drink now." (2020 vintage)

James Halliday "From 40+yo vines, machine-harvested, fermented with cultured yeast." (2019 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "An excellent wine....It's not too dry, but has a faint lick of sweetness at the core.Light, bright yellow colour, with a lifted mandarin, gardenia and honey fragrance, positively Germanic. A lovely array of fresh and dried flowers. The palate is delicate and intense at the same moment; refined in its texture and long, with crystalline purity and refreshing properties that linger. " (2019 vintage)

James Suckling "This is a very refined style that has expressively fresh, lime and wet-stone aromas. The palate delivers a concentrated core of fresh, lime and peach flavors. So polished and so beautifully honed at the finish." (2019 vintage)

Toni Paterson "A highly engaging aroma of spring blossoms and candied lemon peel. Lemon juice flavours on the palate with faint hints of cumquat. A tight, citrusy style.'

Winemaker "100% Riesling grapes from our Wyjup Vineyard. Ashen straw colour. The palate is piercingly focused, with an intense citrus-flavoured core filling the mid-palate and a beautifully structured, wet pebble minerality. The abundant natural acidity provides the backbone for elegant fruit flavours. A very long, clean finish. Cellaring potential of 10 - 14 years."

Western Australian winery, Plantagenent is acclaimed internationally for its consistently highly-awarded, quality wines produced from its five vineyards located in the cool climate region of the Great Southern. It is known for its highly aromatic riesling, tangy citrus-tinged chardonnay, exceptional Rhône-style shiraz and suberb cabernet sauvignon. The five estate vineyards are overseen by Chief Viticulturist Jordan Ellis whose philosophy is sustainability and remaining true to the terroir of the region.

The Real Review "Plantegent is a pioneer of the Great Southern region of Western Australia with vineyards first planted in 1986 and the first commercial winery established in the region. Celebrated for its rich heritage, the winery is owned the Lionel Samson family, the oldest family owned business in Western Australia established in Fremantle in 1829. Plantaganet has five vineyards in the Mount Barker sub region each with the unique characteristics, ancient soils and a cool maritime climate cretaing expressive wines of provenance, quality & prestige. "

James Halliday, Halliday Australian Wine Companion "Plantagenet has honed its flagship varieties into a distinct Great Southern wine style; a depth of lively flavour, seamless elegance and natural purity"

The Great Southern is emerging as a wine region of international significance and reputation. It is the largest wine growing region in Australia and is the second largest producer of grapes in Western Australia. It is a landscape of forested cliffs and resplendent mountain ranges, grazing pastures and towns steeped in history. The regional climate ranges from the coastal, maritime subregions of Albany and Denmark to the inland, continental subregions of Mount Barker, Porongurup and Frankland River. The predominant soils are similar to those of the Margaret River region - either lateritic gravelly sandy loams (marri country) or sandy loams deriving directly from granite and gneissic bedrocks. Near perfect conditions for grape growing has lured some of the most creative and talented winemakers to call this land their home and become part of its ancient story.

Five Star Halliday Rating (2016 vintage)
James Halliday Top Ten ~ Best New Wineries 2015 (2016 vintage)
#6 Top Wineries of Australia 2020 ~ The Real Review

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "The colour is pale, the bouquet intense and bright in flowery aromas without yeastiness, hints of frangipani, star jasmine and apple turnover, the palate likewise super-intense and nicely dry, with seamless acidity and a long carry. Lovely now, and great potential for ageing."

Wine Pilot, Ken Garget "A fine Frankland River Riesling. Handpicked from their blocks C and D of the estate's Powderbark vineyard, the fruit was gently whole bunch pressed with a natural fermentation, after which it spent time on lees for texture and complexity.This is very pale, just a hint of a dilute yellow hue. A focused and yet powerful style, with a minerally/chalky backing. Attractive citrus notes, most notably grapefruits and a touch of lime. Attractive florals. This is still very young and probably needs at least a decade to really hit its straps, when it should really blossom into something special. There is sappy acidity and a hint of a saline note all adding to the complexity on offer. A fine, tight, fresh Riesling with serious length. You'll surely enjoy it now, but even more so if you can give it time"

James Suckling "A tightly-wound wine that needs a moment for the nose to open up. Vibrant kumquat and mandarin orange aromas with a touch of basil. Sleek, crisp and focused with tons of stony energy driving the long, precise finish."

The Wine Front, Campbell Mattinson "Distinctive. Cooked apple, ginger, cider-like notes and then citrus. It’s not broad or even bodied but it has a spread to it, a settle. The flavours come as a sheet rather than as a dart. It works a treat. It’s a lovely wine to drink."

Waters Wine "Gosh, a real step up in intensity from the 2021. Very complex aromatics of salted citrus, lime peel, spring jasmine, grapefruit, orange blossom and spiced apple. Rich and concentrated, extremely powerful, super intense, salty, pithy, textural and precise. Compact and coiled in 2022, requiring a few years to unwind and flesh out. Promises to be very long lived, and one of the best ever released. "

Halliday Wine Companion, Erin Larkin "Hand-picked fruit from the Powderbark vineyard, whole-bunch pressed, wild ferment in stainless steel, then rested on lees prior to bottling. This is an incredibly structured and austere riesling, but that is what we know, love and expect from Frankland River; the wines live long, owing to the prodigious acidity. The pithy fruit unfurls and evolves over time. Pure, precise and focused. Cellar this for the medium term and drink the 2020 while you wait." (2021 vintage)

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "Very light, bright-yellow colour. The aroma is bright and clean, fresh and vibrant, fresh-cut flowers, while the palate is similarly bright and alive, intense and fresh, with pleasing dryness that leaves a clean, savoury aftertaste. Concentrated fruit evident. Good persistence, a slight grip aiding the cleansing properties. " (2021 vintage)

Halliday Wine Companion, Erin Larkin "Fruit from the Powderbark vineyard. Whole-bunch pressed, stainless-steel ferment, on lees for 4 months. This has all the austere acidity that makes Frankland River riesling what it is, but it comes with a plump fruit profile that gives it a richness and almost an opulence. Lychee, lime, green apple and talc. The acidity has a zing and a pop and finishes with a crunch of sea salt." (2020 vintage)

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "Very light, bright-yellow colour. The aroma is bright and clean, fresh and vibrant, fresh-cut flowers, while the palate is similarly bright and alive, intense and fresh, with pleasing dryness that leaves a clean, savoury aftertaste. Concentrated fruit evident. Good persistence, a slight grip aiding the cleansing properties. " (2020 vintage)

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "Pale green-yellow hue, the bouquet exceptionally fragrant, with high-toned citrus pith and citrus juice aromatics. A suggestion of gardenia. The wine is superbly intense and refined, mouth-watering acidity cleansing the finish beautifully. There is a faint trace of grip and the wine is remarkarbly juicy despite having no residual sugar. A beautiful young riesling with a bright future." (2019 vintage)

Young Gun of Wine, Australian Vineyard of The Year 2020 "The Swinney vineyard represents modern viticulture interwoven with Old-World techniques, executed with precision through a combination of exhaustive manual work and state-of-the-art technology, and all underpinned by an environmental focus...and the quality of the resulting wines, is truly extraordinary and inspiring.”

The Swinneys are a pair of brother-and-sister winemakers who are one of the rare new Australian wineries to have two of their wines invited onto the esteemed wine lists of The Ivy and Savoy Grill (Gordon Ramsay) restaurants in London. Swinney Vineyards made its debut in Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2015 with a five-star rating and were ranked in the top ten of best new wineries.

Top 50 of Australia’s Most Collected wines for 2019 – #11
Top 5 Rieslings – #1 - Gourmet Traveller Wine
Langton Classification VI: Rated ‘Exceptional’
Wine Ark: ‘Australia’s Most Collected Riesling

Erin Larkin "This wine retains the energy and drive of Polish Hill, yet its fruit concentration and ripeness has softened out any hard edges. It's beautifully fragrant, subtle even, and the palate is long and pure with pith-like texture and excellent length. Lovely drink and ready now."

Huon Hooke "Very light-yellow colour with a trace of green in the tint. The aroma is ethereal and perfumed, summoning lime leaf and lemon zest, the palate adding a touch of baked lemon pudding, while the finish is long and full and underlined by a trace of grip which adds structure. A powerful young riesling, and very stylish. "

Decanter "The clean, fresh aromas of just-picked citrus fruits belie the enormous power of lime juice and rich lemon pith that immediately fills the front palate on this latest vintage. There’s poise in addition to the power though, with multiple layers of rounded citrus and mineral flavours enjoying a luxurious textural roll through the mid-palate. Perfect integration of fresh citric acid carries the pure fruit qualities through extraordinary length to a crisp, lip-smacking finish." (2020 Vintage)

Jane Faulkner (Halliday) "This wine retains the energy and drive of Polish Hill, yet its fruit concentration and ripeness has softened out any hard edges. It's beautifully fragrant, subtle even, and the palate is long and pure with pith-like texture and excellent length. Lovely drink and ready now." (2020 Vintage)

Huon Hooke "Light, bright yellow hue. Reserved, discreet, subtly yeasty aromas, bright and clean and scented with dried flowers. It's very intense in the mouth, showing concentration and drive, the juicy fruit of the fore-palate morphing into a firm, dry back-palate and a long tail. An excellent wine, of superior fruit intensity and persistence. Great cellaring potential " (2020 Vintage)

James Suckling "Stony and mineral character here with a spicy, wet-stone nose and a wealth of lime and light peach, as well as talcum powder. Chiseled palate with linear acidity and drive. Fresh, long and quite expressive already. Has the potential to improve in bottle as well. Drink or hold. Screw cap." (2020 Vintage)

Ralph Kyte-Powell "The colour is pale straw with a greenish tinge and the nose offers concentration that sets it apart from most peers. Aromas of lime sherbet, pineapple, spice, musky florals and steel seem riper and richer than usual, and the palate follows suit with great depth and minerally power, tingly acid backbone, firm structure and lingering finish. It will no doubt build more complexity in bottle, but it may be a Polish Hill to drink a little earlier than many previous vintages." (2020 Vintage)

Tyson Stelzer "Such is Jeffrey Grosset’s precise and refined approach that even a dry, low-yielding season has done nothing to thwart the ethereal fragrance, breathtaking purity, green-tinted energy, scintillating acidity, inimitable slate texture and impeccable phenolic delicacy of the phenomenal site. This is a vintage of fantastic concentration, heightened character and enticing jubilation." (2019 Vintage)

Decanter "More intense than many young Polish Hill Rieslings, this 2019 retains great poise and shape within its rich frame. Floral notes abound – violets and lavender, lemon and lime blossom – and such a heady perfume points towards a similarly rich palate. Intense juicy lime is carried on a tight acid spine that also bears mineral notes of shale and schist. Complex yet crisp and very persistent." (2019 Vintage)

James Halliday "The sails of the ship are still tightly furled, but the length and balance will stand the wine well as it ages (for decades) elaborating on the flavours of the Polish Hill River district as it always does." (2019 Vintage)

Campbell Mattinson "Super dry. Super minerally. Excellent intensity. Purity, absolutely. Hay, wheat, lime, flowery apples and talc, and of course that quartz-like quality. It’s tight through the finish, to the point where it doesn’t quite feel as long as it should; it will relax in time, and all will be sorted.” (2019 Vintage)

Huon Hooke "This is typical Polish: a style that will reward cellaring, but gives plenty of pleasure now. The aroma is very refined, restrained and intense, with an array of floral aromas, from fresh flowers to dried wildflowers and potpourri. Lemon pith, too. Intense yet restrained." (2019 Vintage)

Jancis Robinson "Subtle and layered. Really exciting already because of the density. Tense but the fruit extract means you could actually drink it now." (2019 Vintage)

Robert Parker "The 2019 Polish Hill Riesling boasts hints of baby powder and lime alongside green apple and mint on the nose. It's medium-bodied, with a pristine, almost watery feel on the palate, but it simultaneously delivers fascinating intensity of flavor and tremendous length, with a gentle, softly dusty texture on the finish. It should easily cellar for more than a decade." (2019 Vintage)

Decanter "A full, rich nose – with lavender, fresh herb and bright, zesty lime – suggests power, yet the palate opens to a more gentle weave of tightly integrated flavours. A rich mid-palate has a hint of lemon pith among intense brown lime and cool slate, all carried on a mighty girder of acid on a lengthy spine. Bone-dry, intense, persistent; leaves the mouth thirsty for more. (2018 Vintage)

Decanter Magazine ~ The World’s Top 10 White Winemakers #6 Jeffrey Grosset

"When the young Jeffrey Grosset launched his own winery in the Clare Valley in the early 1980’s, he was swimming against the tide. Back then, Chardonnay was the rising star of Australian Wine. But Grosset wanted to make Riesling, and to focus on letting the grapes speak for themselves. The rest of the Australian wine industry has, of course, caught up with Grosset since, thanks in part to the example set by this focused, restlessly intelligent winemaker. By consistently producing arguably Australia’s two best Rieslings – the flowery, lime-rich Watervale and the steely, firm Polish Hill – Grosset has not only helped steer the reversal in this variety’s fortunes, but has provided one of the country’s most powerful arguments in favour of the reality of terroir"

Grosset Wines are an independently owned winery producing highly regarded premium wines. Established in 1981, the winery is situated in the historic township of Auburn at the southern tip of the Clare Valley, 100 kilometres north of Adelaide.

Jeffrey Grosset, owner and founder, has always been an innovator, challenging tradition and questioning accepted practices. He campaigned to institute the legal integrity of the Riesling grape in Australia, was a leading proponent for the introduction of screwcap closures and privately funded research into the subject.

Grosset Wines’ philosophy has remained steadfast over thirty years. The emphasis is on purity of fruit. The estate vineyards, which are ACO certified organic, are hand tended and each bunch of grapes is harvested at optimum ripeness.

The winemaking process is gentle and uncomplicated. With dedication, discipline and the application of knowledge garnered through decades of experience, the result is the finest expression of variety and place.

Wine Ark: one of Australia’s ‘Five Most Collected White Wines’ (2017 vintage)

Erin Larkin, Wine Companion "Where the Polish Hill is the powerful, muscular one of the family, the Springvale is the often underestimated little sibling. Similarly powerfully structured, but leaning towards the spicy end of the spectrum rather than plum in the middle of fleshy fruit power. This is structured and saline, with layers of cut lime, red apple skins, saffron, turmeric and citrus pith. All of it encased in briny acidity and stretched out over an interminably long finish. Generous and structured at once. Super smart."

Mike Bennie, Wine Front "Springvale ahoy! Pretty perfume of frangipani, honeysuckle and lime with faint hints of blackcurrants. Juicy and approachable in the palate, slick with citrus oil characters, cool with lacy line of acidity, a touch of salted nuts, all well balanced, exceptional in length and persistence. Feels concentrated and quietly powerful. Smart release."

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Very light to pale-straw colour. The aromas are on the more lifted and fragrant side, with a bouquet of flowers … the palate refined and seamless, soft as talc and harmonious, the acidity perfectly balanced, the finish refreshing and long. Dry-but-soft aftertaste. A lovely wine… needs more time to settle. "

Mike Bennie (The Wine Front) "Easy access Springvale, following a similar thread with 2020 Polish Hill too. Waxy texture with a juicy finish, lime cordial, floral things in scent and mouth perfume, a little bit of apple dunked in lemon juice and a starburst of grapefruit juice lending tightness and freshness while making you squint and flush warm under your eyes. Touches of smoky mineral character? A little truffle note? Almost a candied mixed peel thing going on. Bolder flavours, bigger mouthfeel, no dart-shaped precision here, but a pleasing, fleshier wine is here. Intrigue." (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "This has a very fresh nectarine and lime nose with light floral notes and delivers a fleshy, ripe palate that has juicy, drink-now appeal. A little stony mineral to close." (2020 vintage)

Erin Larkin "Lime zest, pith, limestone and white pepper. Freshly crushed granny smith apple (skin on) and brine in there too. There is a salty lick that forms the backbone of acid that runs through the very core of this wine. It doesn’t flow in the order I expect it to, which takes nothing away from it, it just makes it unique. Savoury, salty and tight but underpinned by fleshy generosity… it’s like a firm steel structure thrown onto a plush down-filled coverlet… enduring, stupendous length of flavour – I can taste it long after it is gone. Saline and lingering. Great length of flavour. Powerhouse." (2020 vintage)

Tyson Stelzer "Jeff Grosset describes the volume of his 40th vintage as ‘woeful’, with drought inflicting his lowest yields in three decades. To achieve his signature pinpoint accuracy under such circumstances is monumental indeed. All the fragrant apple blossom, fresh lemon and crunchy granny smith apple that we love of Springvale are here in full measure, impeccably energised by focussed acidity" (2020 vintage)

Halliday Wine Companion Awards 2023, Erin Larkin "Where the Polish Hill is the powerful, muscular one of the family, the Springvale is the often underestimated little sibling. Similarly powerfully structured, but leaning towards the spicy end of the spectrum rather than plum in the middle of fleshy fruit power. This is structured and saline, with layers of cut lime, red apple skins, saffron, turmeric and citrus pith. All of it encased in briny acidity and stretched out over an interminably long finish. Generous and structured at once. Super smart." (2019 vintage)

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." (2017 vintage)

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." (2017 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "This wine is lively, tense and crisply acid on the palate.....Bright light-mid yellow colour with a similarly forward-developed bouquet, showing lime, quince-paste, apricot aromas and subtle hints of toast."

Robert Parker "This is routinely a smart wine—austere and lean on release but with brilliant poise and line. This cooler-vintage 2021 Angevin Riesling makes not exception to that rule, with notes of lemon oil, Granny Smith apples, brine and fleshy citrus. Very good indeed." (2021 vintage)

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "A lovely wine; chalky, mineral, saline...It's gratifying tasting wines that give you more as you pay more ... it's sort of how we hope it would be (and not the other way around!). This has all the line and austerity of the Three Lions Riesling, but with additional layers of plump fruit and cushioned phenolics. It remains true to it regional roots, taut and coiled, but it also begins to unfurl and open as it stays in the mouth." (2021 vintage)

Gabrielle Poy, The Real Review "..A delicious dry riesling that will age well....Honey and lime leaf aromas lead into a racy dry palate. There's lots of flesh on the bones providing great flavours and carry. This is alive and enticing on the palate, with rapier-like acidity and great intensity.(2021 vintage)

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "Quite an astoundingly beautiful and pure wine of poise, line and length." (2020 vintage)

Sam Kim "It's exquisitely styled, showing Granny Smith apple, lime cordial and white flesh nectarine notes on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that delivers outstanding fruit purity and poise. Refined and stylish with a graceful future ahead." (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "This has striking purity and such fresh citrus-fruit aromas, as well as some savory, mineral notes. The palate is sleekly driven by brisk acidity that carries fresh lime-juice flavor. Bang! Drink now." (2020 vintage)

James Halliday "From 40+yo vines, machine-harvested, fermented with cultured yeast." (2019 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "An excellent wine....It's not too dry, but has a faint lick of sweetness at the core.Light, bright yellow colour, with a lifted mandarin, gardenia and honey fragrance, positively Germanic. A lovely array of fresh and dried flowers. The palate is delicate and intense at the same moment; refined in its texture and long, with crystalline purity and refreshing properties that linger. " (2019 vintage)

James Suckling "This is a very refined style that has expressively fresh, lime and wet-stone aromas. The palate delivers a concentrated core of fresh, lime and peach flavors. So polished and so beautifully honed at the finish." (2019 vintage)

Toni Paterson "A highly engaging aroma of spring blossoms and candied lemon peel. Lemon juice flavours on the palate with faint hints of cumquat. A tight, citrusy style.'

Winemaker "100% Riesling grapes from our Wyjup Vineyard. Ashen straw colour. The palate is piercingly focused, with an intense citrus-flavoured core filling the mid-palate and a beautifully structured, wet pebble minerality. The abundant natural acidity provides the backbone for elegant fruit flavours. A very long, clean finish. Cellaring potential of 10 - 14 years."

Western Australian winery, Plantagenent is acclaimed internationally for its consistently highly-awarded, quality wines produced from its five vineyards located in the cool climate region of the Great Southern. It is known for its highly aromatic riesling, tangy citrus-tinged chardonnay, exceptional Rhône-style shiraz and suberb cabernet sauvignon. The five estate vineyards are overseen by Chief Viticulturist Jordan Ellis whose philosophy is sustainability and remaining true to the terroir of the region.

The Real Review "Plantegent is a pioneer of the Great Southern region of Western Australia with vineyards first planted in 1986 and the first commercial winery established in the region. Celebrated for its rich heritage, the winery is owned the Lionel Samson family, the oldest family owned business in Western Australia established in Fremantle in 1829. Plantaganet has five vineyards in the Mount Barker sub region each with the unique characteristics, ancient soils and a cool maritime climate cretaing expressive wines of provenance, quality & prestige. "

James Halliday, Halliday Australian Wine Companion "Plantagenet has honed its flagship varieties into a distinct Great Southern wine style; a depth of lively flavour, seamless elegance and natural purity"

The Great Southern is emerging as a wine region of international significance and reputation. It is the largest wine growing region in Australia and is the second largest producer of grapes in Western Australia. It is a landscape of forested cliffs and resplendent mountain ranges, grazing pastures and towns steeped in history. The regional climate ranges from the coastal, maritime subregions of Albany and Denmark to the inland, continental subregions of Mount Barker, Porongurup and Frankland River. The predominant soils are similar to those of the Margaret River region - either lateritic gravelly sandy loams (marri country) or sandy loams deriving directly from granite and gneissic bedrocks. Near perfect conditions for grape growing has lured some of the most creative and talented winemakers to call this land their home and become part of its ancient story.

Five Star Halliday Rating (2016 vintage)
James Halliday Top Ten ~ Best New Wineries 2015 (2016 vintage)
#6 Top Wineries of Australia 2020 ~ The Real Review

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "The colour is pale, the bouquet intense and bright in flowery aromas without yeastiness, hints of frangipani, star jasmine and apple turnover, the palate likewise super-intense and nicely dry, with seamless acidity and a long carry. Lovely now, and great potential for ageing."

Wine Pilot, Ken Garget "A fine Frankland River Riesling. Handpicked from their blocks C and D of the estate's Powderbark vineyard, the fruit was gently whole bunch pressed with a natural fermentation, after which it spent time on lees for texture and complexity.This is very pale, just a hint of a dilute yellow hue. A focused and yet powerful style, with a minerally/chalky backing. Attractive citrus notes, most notably grapefruits and a touch of lime. Attractive florals. This is still very young and probably needs at least a decade to really hit its straps, when it should really blossom into something special. There is sappy acidity and a hint of a saline note all adding to the complexity on offer. A fine, tight, fresh Riesling with serious length. You'll surely enjoy it now, but even more so if you can give it time"

James Suckling "A tightly-wound wine that needs a moment for the nose to open up. Vibrant kumquat and mandarin orange aromas with a touch of basil. Sleek, crisp and focused with tons of stony energy driving the long, precise finish."

The Wine Front, Campbell Mattinson "Distinctive. Cooked apple, ginger, cider-like notes and then citrus. It’s not broad or even bodied but it has a spread to it, a settle. The flavours come as a sheet rather than as a dart. It works a treat. It’s a lovely wine to drink."

Waters Wine "Gosh, a real step up in intensity from the 2021. Very complex aromatics of salted citrus, lime peel, spring jasmine, grapefruit, orange blossom and spiced apple. Rich and concentrated, extremely powerful, super intense, salty, pithy, textural and precise. Compact and coiled in 2022, requiring a few years to unwind and flesh out. Promises to be very long lived, and one of the best ever released. "

Halliday Wine Companion, Erin Larkin "Hand-picked fruit from the Powderbark vineyard, whole-bunch pressed, wild ferment in stainless steel, then rested on lees prior to bottling. This is an incredibly structured and austere riesling, but that is what we know, love and expect from Frankland River; the wines live long, owing to the prodigious acidity. The pithy fruit unfurls and evolves over time. Pure, precise and focused. Cellar this for the medium term and drink the 2020 while you wait." (2021 vintage)

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "Very light, bright-yellow colour. The aroma is bright and clean, fresh and vibrant, fresh-cut flowers, while the palate is similarly bright and alive, intense and fresh, with pleasing dryness that leaves a clean, savoury aftertaste. Concentrated fruit evident. Good persistence, a slight grip aiding the cleansing properties. " (2021 vintage)

Halliday Wine Companion, Erin Larkin "Fruit from the Powderbark vineyard. Whole-bunch pressed, stainless-steel ferment, on lees for 4 months. This has all the austere acidity that makes Frankland River riesling what it is, but it comes with a plump fruit profile that gives it a richness and almost an opulence. Lychee, lime, green apple and talc. The acidity has a zing and a pop and finishes with a crunch of sea salt." (2020 vintage)

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "Very light, bright-yellow colour. The aroma is bright and clean, fresh and vibrant, fresh-cut flowers, while the palate is similarly bright and alive, intense and fresh, with pleasing dryness that leaves a clean, savoury aftertaste. Concentrated fruit evident. Good persistence, a slight grip aiding the cleansing properties. " (2020 vintage)

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "Pale green-yellow hue, the bouquet exceptionally fragrant, with high-toned citrus pith and citrus juice aromatics. A suggestion of gardenia. The wine is superbly intense and refined, mouth-watering acidity cleansing the finish beautifully. There is a faint trace of grip and the wine is remarkarbly juicy despite having no residual sugar. A beautiful young riesling with a bright future." (2019 vintage)

Young Gun of Wine, Australian Vineyard of The Year 2020 "The Swinney vineyard represents modern viticulture interwoven with Old-World techniques, executed with precision through a combination of exhaustive manual work and state-of-the-art technology, and all underpinned by an environmental focus...and the quality of the resulting wines, is truly extraordinary and inspiring.”

The Swinneys are a pair of brother-and-sister winemakers who are one of the rare new Australian wineries to have two of their wines invited onto the esteemed wine lists of The Ivy and Savoy Grill (Gordon Ramsay) restaurants in London. Swinney Vineyards made its debut in Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2015 with a five-star rating and were ranked in the top ten of best new wineries.

Top 50 of Australia’s Most Collected wines for 2019 – #11
Top 5 Rieslings – #1 - Gourmet Traveller Wine
Langton Classification VI: Rated ‘Exceptional’
Wine Ark: ‘Australia’s Most Collected Riesling

Erin Larkin "This wine retains the energy and drive of Polish Hill, yet its fruit concentration and ripeness has softened out any hard edges. It's beautifully fragrant, subtle even, and the palate is long and pure with pith-like texture and excellent length. Lovely drink and ready now."

Huon Hooke "Very light-yellow colour with a trace of green in the tint. The aroma is ethereal and perfumed, summoning lime leaf and lemon zest, the palate adding a touch of baked lemon pudding, while the finish is long and full and underlined by a trace of grip which adds structure. A powerful young riesling, and very stylish. "

Decanter "The clean, fresh aromas of just-picked citrus fruits belie the enormous power of lime juice and rich lemon pith that immediately fills the front palate on this latest vintage. There’s poise in addition to the power though, with multiple layers of rounded citrus and mineral flavours enjoying a luxurious textural roll through the mid-palate. Perfect integration of fresh citric acid carries the pure fruit qualities through extraordinary length to a crisp, lip-smacking finish." (2020 Vintage)

Jane Faulkner (Halliday) "This wine retains the energy and drive of Polish Hill, yet its fruit concentration and ripeness has softened out any hard edges. It's beautifully fragrant, subtle even, and the palate is long and pure with pith-like texture and excellent length. Lovely drink and ready now." (2020 Vintage)

Huon Hooke "Light, bright yellow hue. Reserved, discreet, subtly yeasty aromas, bright and clean and scented with dried flowers. It's very intense in the mouth, showing concentration and drive, the juicy fruit of the fore-palate morphing into a firm, dry back-palate and a long tail. An excellent wine, of superior fruit intensity and persistence. Great cellaring potential " (2020 Vintage)

James Suckling "Stony and mineral character here with a spicy, wet-stone nose and a wealth of lime and light peach, as well as talcum powder. Chiseled palate with linear acidity and drive. Fresh, long and quite expressive already. Has the potential to improve in bottle as well. Drink or hold. Screw cap." (2020 Vintage)

Ralph Kyte-Powell "The colour is pale straw with a greenish tinge and the nose offers concentration that sets it apart from most peers. Aromas of lime sherbet, pineapple, spice, musky florals and steel seem riper and richer than usual, and the palate follows suit with great depth and minerally power, tingly acid backbone, firm structure and lingering finish. It will no doubt build more complexity in bottle, but it may be a Polish Hill to drink a little earlier than many previous vintages." (2020 Vintage)

Tyson Stelzer "Such is Jeffrey Grosset’s precise and refined approach that even a dry, low-yielding season has done nothing to thwart the ethereal fragrance, breathtaking purity, green-tinted energy, scintillating acidity, inimitable slate texture and impeccable phenolic delicacy of the phenomenal site. This is a vintage of fantastic concentration, heightened character and enticing jubilation." (2019 Vintage)

Decanter "More intense than many young Polish Hill Rieslings, this 2019 retains great poise and shape within its rich frame. Floral notes abound – violets and lavender, lemon and lime blossom – and such a heady perfume points towards a similarly rich palate. Intense juicy lime is carried on a tight acid spine that also bears mineral notes of shale and schist. Complex yet crisp and very persistent." (2019 Vintage)

James Halliday "The sails of the ship are still tightly furled, but the length and balance will stand the wine well as it ages (for decades) elaborating on the flavours of the Polish Hill River district as it always does." (2019 Vintage)

Campbell Mattinson "Super dry. Super minerally. Excellent intensity. Purity, absolutely. Hay, wheat, lime, flowery apples and talc, and of course that quartz-like quality. It’s tight through the finish, to the point where it doesn’t quite feel as long as it should; it will relax in time, and all will be sorted.” (2019 Vintage)

Huon Hooke "This is typical Polish: a style that will reward cellaring, but gives plenty of pleasure now. The aroma is very refined, restrained and intense, with an array of floral aromas, from fresh flowers to dried wildflowers and potpourri. Lemon pith, too. Intense yet restrained." (2019 Vintage)

Jancis Robinson "Subtle and layered. Really exciting already because of the density. Tense but the fruit extract means you could actually drink it now." (2019 Vintage)

Robert Parker "The 2019 Polish Hill Riesling boasts hints of baby powder and lime alongside green apple and mint on the nose. It's medium-bodied, with a pristine, almost watery feel on the palate, but it simultaneously delivers fascinating intensity of flavor and tremendous length, with a gentle, softly dusty texture on the finish. It should easily cellar for more than a decade." (2019 Vintage)

Decanter "A full, rich nose – with lavender, fresh herb and bright, zesty lime – suggests power, yet the palate opens to a more gentle weave of tightly integrated flavours. A rich mid-palate has a hint of lemon pith among intense brown lime and cool slate, all carried on a mighty girder of acid on a lengthy spine. Bone-dry, intense, persistent; leaves the mouth thirsty for more. (2018 Vintage)

Decanter Magazine ~ The World’s Top 10 White Winemakers #6 Jeffrey Grosset

"When the young Jeffrey Grosset launched his own winery in the Clare Valley in the early 1980’s, he was swimming against the tide. Back then, Chardonnay was the rising star of Australian Wine. But Grosset wanted to make Riesling, and to focus on letting the grapes speak for themselves. The rest of the Australian wine industry has, of course, caught up with Grosset since, thanks in part to the example set by this focused, restlessly intelligent winemaker. By consistently producing arguably Australia’s two best Rieslings – the flowery, lime-rich Watervale and the steely, firm Polish Hill – Grosset has not only helped steer the reversal in this variety’s fortunes, but has provided one of the country’s most powerful arguments in favour of the reality of terroir"

Grosset Wines are an independently owned winery producing highly regarded premium wines. Established in 1981, the winery is situated in the historic township of Auburn at the southern tip of the Clare Valley, 100 kilometres north of Adelaide.

Jeffrey Grosset, owner and founder, has always been an innovator, challenging tradition and questioning accepted practices. He campaigned to institute the legal integrity of the Riesling grape in Australia, was a leading proponent for the introduction of screwcap closures and privately funded research into the subject.

Grosset Wines’ philosophy has remained steadfast over thirty years. The emphasis is on purity of fruit. The estate vineyards, which are ACO certified organic, are hand tended and each bunch of grapes is harvested at optimum ripeness.

The winemaking process is gentle and uncomplicated. With dedication, discipline and the application of knowledge garnered through decades of experience, the result is the finest expression of variety and place.

Halliday Wine Companion - Best Value Winery 2018
Langton Classification VI: Rated ‘Outstanding’ (2017 vintage)
Wine Ark: one of Australia’s ‘Five Most Collected White Wines’ (2017 vintage)

Erin Larkin, Wine Companion "Where the Polish Hill is the powerful, muscular one of the family, the Springvale is the often underestimated little sibling. Similarly powerfully structured, but leaning towards the spicy end of the spectrum rather than plum in the middle of fleshy fruit power. This is structured and saline, with layers of cut lime, red apple skins, saffron, turmeric and citrus pith. All of it encased in briny acidity and stretched out over an interminably long finish. Generous and structured at once. Super smart."

Mike Bennie, Wine Front "Springvale ahoy! Pretty perfume of frangipani, honeysuckle and lime with faint hints of blackcurrants. Juicy and approachable in the palate, slick with citrus oil characters, cool with lacy line of acidity, a touch of salted nuts, all well balanced, exceptional in length and persistence. Feels concentrated and quietly powerful. Smart release."

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Very light to pale-straw colour. The aromas are on the more lifted and fragrant side, with a bouquet of flowers … the palate refined and seamless, soft as talc and harmonious, the acidity perfectly balanced, the finish refreshing and long. Dry-but-soft aftertaste. A lovely wine… needs more time to settle. "

Mike Bennie (The Wine Front) "Easy access Springvale, following a similar thread with 2020 Polish Hill too. Waxy texture with a juicy finish, lime cordial, floral things in scent and mouth perfume, a little bit of apple dunked in lemon juice and a starburst of grapefruit juice lending tightness and freshness while making you squint and flush warm under your eyes. Touches of smoky mineral character? A little truffle note? Almost a candied mixed peel thing going on. Bolder flavours, bigger mouthfeel, no dart-shaped precision here, but a pleasing, fleshier wine is here. Intrigue." (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "This has a very fresh nectarine and lime nose with light floral notes and delivers a fleshy, ripe palate that has juicy, drink-now appeal. A little stony mineral to close." (2020 vintage)

Erin Larkin "Lime zest, pith, limestone and white pepper. Freshly crushed granny smith apple (skin on) and brine in there too. There is a salty lick that forms the backbone of acid that runs through the very core of this wine. It doesn’t flow in the order I expect it to, which takes nothing away from it, it just makes it unique. Savoury, salty and tight but underpinned by fleshy generosity… it’s like a firm steel structure thrown onto a plush down-filled coverlet… enduring, stupendous length of flavour – I can taste it long after it is gone. Saline and lingering. Great length of flavour. Powerhouse." (2020 vintage)

Tyson Stelzer "Jeff Grosset describes the volume of his 40th vintage as ‘woeful’, with drought inflicting his lowest yields in three decades. To achieve his signature pinpoint accuracy under such circumstances is monumental indeed. All the fragrant apple blossom, fresh lemon and crunchy granny smith apple that we love of Springvale are here in full measure, impeccably energised by focussed acidity" (2020 vintage)

Halliday Wine Companion Awards 2023, Erin Larkin "Where the Polish Hill is the powerful, muscular one of the family, the Springvale is the often underestimated little sibling. Similarly powerfully structured, but leaning towards the spicy end of the spectrum rather than plum in the middle of fleshy fruit power. This is structured and saline, with layers of cut lime, red apple skins, saffron, turmeric and citrus pith. All of it encased in briny acidity and stretched out over an interminably long finish. Generous and structured at once. Super smart." (2019 vintage)

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." (2017 vintage)

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." (2017 vintage)
