Grosset 2010 Springvale Rielsing
The 2010 harvest marks the 30th consecutive vintage of the Grosset Watervale Riesling. This single site wine is from the estate’s six hectare ‘Springvale’ vineyard which is mainly on a gentle north-facing slope with red loamy soil over limestone at one of the highest parts of the Watervale subregion. The 2009 ‘Springvale’ was outstanding and Grosset believes that this may be better.
The 2010 Grosset Springvale Riesling has lemon, lime blossom aromatics, intense pure tangy lime juice, is fine and impeccably focused, powerful and tight with mouth-watering zesty quartz minerality on a bone-dry finish that lingers. Layer after layer of flavour washes over the palate followed by an impeccably balanced, satisfying, taut grip.
