Grosset Polish Hill Riesling

In fragrance, purity, energy and slatey mineral texture, Polish Hill is the riesling of the year to date. Nothing in Clare or Eden Valley comes close in this warm season, so I lined up the best of Western Australia and Tasmania, and Grosset Polish Hill came out on top. A gloriously fragrant bouquet of lily perfume, lime blossom and granny smith apple heralds a palate of amazing energy, tension and purity, remarkable for the season, with impeccable precision and focused acid line. Persistence is incredible underlined by softly slatey mouth feel. A sensational Polish Hill, with long-term potential, set to go down among the greats. $48 at Wine Star and East End Cellars.
