Overview

The six hectare Springvale vineyard is situated at Watervale’s highest elevation (460 metres) on a gradual, mainly north-facing slope where the soil is red loam over limestone and slate. This highly sustaining profile insulates the drought sensitive riesling vines, which produce lime-green medium-sized berries.

Expert Reviews

Extraordinary. This is one of the best. Lean, long and dry. Enormous length and intriguing aftertaste. Subtle, refined and long. Exquisite aftertaste. Perfect. 18.8/20 points - John Jens, Western Suburbs Weekly, 20 August 2013

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The 2013 Grosset Springvale Riesling shows some lime zest and lime blossom aromatics but there’s more restraint than usual, almost a shyness.

Palate

The palate has intense lime juice flavour, a hint of lemon and more pronounced savoury minerality, schisty, shaley character than previous years. It’s tight, yet finely structured, with a taut, crisp, chalky minerality adding length to the ultra-dry finish. While this may be difficult to confirm, these intriguing qualities could be a reflection of the vines maturing, and the roots reaching the shale and slate below the limestone. This is an increasingly complex and serious riesling.
