Grosset Springvale Riesling Watervale

If the Polish Hill is power and intensity, the sub-regional Watervale Riesling resonates pure fruit with mouthwatering slatey acidity. The fruit derives from a hill top site with a high exposure to sunlight. The thin topsoils are red loams interspersed with shale over limestone and the vines are deeply rooted into slate/shale bedrock. The wine is vinified in the same manner as the Polish Hill Riesling. No pressings are used in the wine. Grosset says, "making Riesling is the purest form of winemaking our options are very restricted. No oak, no malo-lactic and usually no extended lees contact or grape-skin contact is employed. A disciplined winemaking approach is needed to retain the inherent fruit characters and expression of individual vineyard site." Andrew Caillard MW
