Jeffrey Grosset is widely regarded to be Australia’s top Riesling producer. Based in the Clare Valley, in South Australia, he makes two premium Rieslings from different sites, and they are both brilliant. I had a chance to try the recently released 2013s and here are my verdicts.
Grosset Springvale Riesling 2013 Clare Valley, Australia
Lively, precise, very pure and bone dry. Mineral with a hint of spice and some talcum notes, as well as lemon and lime fruit. Laser sharp focus, but there’s a bit of richness here providing balance. Such precision: a lovely wine. 93/100
Grosset Polish Hill Riesling 2013 Clare Valley, Australia
Very fine and fresh; limey and precise. There’s a bit of grapefruit, too. Lean, fresh, dry and so mineral this has lovely weight. Lively, bright and with great acidity, it avoids being austere. Less showy than the Springvale, but with more substance and mineral depth, and a bit more concentration. 94/100
