Grosset Polish Hill Riesling 2020

ERIN LARKIN 97 POINTS! 
RALPH KYTE-POWELL 95 POINTS! 

"For many, the Grosset highpoint is Polish Hill, a wine that’s become a flagship for Australian dry riesling. The 2020 has just arrived, and like past vintages it’s certainly age-worthy, but it seems more precocious in style than usual, which makes it a pretty impressive thing to sip in this first flush of youth.

The colour is pale straw with a greenish tinge and the nose offers concentration that sets it apart from most peers. Aromas of lime sherbet, pineapple, spice, musky florals and steel seem riper and richer than usual, and the palate follows suit with great depth and minerally power, tingly acid backbone, firm structure and lingering finish. It will no doubt build more complexity in bottle, but it may be a Polish Hill to drink a little earlier than many previous vintages." Ralph Kyte-Powell

"This is a wine that is overlaid on itself: citrus fruit, jasmine florals and pith are draped over white pepper, jasmine tea and sea salt; these layers are fixed to the firm acid and phenolic structure that is the flesh and body of this wine.  This is a tightly packed, savoury, serious, searing riesling with authority and gravitas.  The length of flavour is something to behold.  There is a lightness and a purity in 2020 that confirms life and lift – where the ’19 had a warmth and sunshine in it – this is dappled shade and cool breeze."Erin Larkin
