Grosset Polish Hill Riesling

The most sublime Polish Hills are breathtakingly gorgeous in their youth, and 2012 is the equal of the finest. Then it goes further. I cannot recall an Australian riesling of such refined poise, utter calm, magnificent concentration and devastating purity. Glorious white lilies and granny smith apple blossom glide through a bouquet of focused lime fruit and perfectly ripe lemons. The flow of fruit precision on the palate is an epiphany, every bit as hauntingly perfumed as the bouquet. Polish Hill slate surges in a cascade of mineral texture of profound depth and presence, rippling onward with unrelenting perseverance. Grosset Polish Hill 2012 is every bit worthy of the highest score I have awarded any Australian riesling – and, for that matter, any wine under $50. Don’t miss this crucial chapter in Australian riesling history. Released September 1.
