Grosset 2022 Polish Hill Riesling

This is consistently Australia's finest dry riesling; organic, biodynamic and made in a style that is constantly evolving. From a single vineyards site in the Clare Valley - Australia's riesling heartland - this is tremendously vibrant and spectacular drinking even in its infancy. It has an intensity on the nose that leads to a core of citrus, steeliness and enticing minerality. Powerful, yet beautifully balanced, this is a world-class wine from a maker who never sets on his laurels. Tight, taut and terrific like a vinous ballet dancer, it skips across the palate. Jeff Grosset says you can cellar it for 20 years of more - if you have the self control. It also vegan friendly. Released September 1. Be quick or miss out. $75.
