Grosset, Riesling, Polish Hill, South Australia, 2022
Overview of the Wine
Grosset Wines is an independently owned winery producing seven highly regarded premium wines each vintage. Established in 1981, the winery is situated in the historic township of Auburn at the southern tip of the Clare Valley, 100 kilometres north of Adelaide.
Jeffrey Grosset, owner and founder, has always been an innovator, challenging tradition and questioning accepted practices. He campaigned to institute the legal integrity of the Riesling grape in Australia, was a leading proponent for the introduction of screwcap closures and privately funded research into the subject.
Grosset Wines’ philosophy has remained steadfast over thirty years. The emphasis is on purity of fruit. The estate vineyards, which are ACO certified organic, are hand tended and each bunch of grapes is harvested at optimum ripeness. The winemaking process is gentle and uncomplicated. With dedication, discipline and the application of knowledge garnered through decades of experience, the result is the finest expression of variety and place.
In Australia this wine sells out the day the cellar doors open. It is so allocated that it’s been eight years since I have been able to sell them. But I finally, finally, finally got it again, and now is the time to buy.
Certified organic vineyards.
This is the benchmark for dry Riesling worldwide.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Bright and potent with intense lime juice aromatics that commands attention, this wine has a wonderful lime, lemongrass core; intensity and power yet with balance in the mid-palate. There’s a purity which thrills: it’s tight and fine before a long limey finish and a whisper of minerality. So attractive and persistent in its youth, it has the depth, power and balance to enjoy now or in 20 years.
98 Points - James Suckling
Spectacular nose with a cornucopia of delicate citrus, stone-fruit and wildflower aromas. Then, a no less stunning combination of fruit and radically slate, flint and aniseed character. Very long finish with so much energy and great minerality. Excellent aging potential! From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
