Wine of the Week AU

Grosset Polish Hill Riesling 2017, Clare Valley, AUD $55

This is a superb young riesling, as good as I can recall from Grosset. Pungent aromas of lemon pith, candlewax and cream, the palate crisp and lively with intense lime and lemon fruit of crystalline clarity, finishing with refreshing acidity. Just beautiful. (Screwcap)
