Grosset Alea Riesling

The most enduring off-dry rieslings are driven by levels of acidity that render them exceedingly long-lived, and the searing backbone of taut acid structure that defines Grosset’s 2013 is poised to outlive any dry riesling from this season. Structurally, it’s impeccable, this bolt of acidity rendering its residual sweetness nigh-on invisible, with fine-tuned phenolics lending a gentle grip to a long finish. Beautifully fragrant lily and lime blossom notes carry through a palate of pristine lemon fruit flavour and hints of fennel.$31 at Banks.
