Grosset Polish Hill Riesling

"Established in 1966 Polish Hill Vineyard is named after the nearby Hill River Settlement established by Polish immigrants in the 1840s. The fully mature low-vigour vines are planted on a U-shaped ridge formation on poor shaley slightly acidic soils with underlying slate and a topsoil crust of clay interspersed with shale. Vintage takes place in early April, normally a few weeks later than Watervale. The free-run juice is cold settled for four days before being yeasted and fermented in closed stainless steel fermenters. The wines have incredible perfume and fruit purity, the lime/floral fruit profile balanced by a fine cut of acidity. This long-lived beautifully aromatic and concentrated wine does much to define great Clare Valley Riesling."Andrew Caillard MW
