Wine tasting notes

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