A swirl of the glass will unleash the potent aromas of this very different vintage of Grosset Springvale Riesling. It's so dramatically perfumed that it's almost overwhelming: the aromatics themselves are not so surprising - lovely florals, lemongrass, lime juice. But the sheer intensity is atypical. That's how the lowest yielding harvest in decades reveals itself. On the palate, too, the lime and lemon flavours are concentrated, powerful and weighty with impressive length on a fine, mouth-puckering finish featuring crisp, cleansing acidity that lingers. While it's immediately appealing, there's no question that this is age-worthy.
Pale, green-tinged straw. High-pitched citrus pith and floral aromas carry a chalky mineral overtone. Vibrant and sharply focused, offering green apple, pink grapefruit and honeysuckle flavors that deepen steadily with air. Shows a powerful mineral note on the incisive, impressively persistent finish, which leaves behind repeating citrus fruit and floral notes.
Green apple and lime notes appear on the nose of the 2019 Springvale Riesling. It's medium-bodied and a bit plump on the palate, balanced by a chalky texture, while hints of lemongrass impart a slightly green-herbal element on the lingering finish. Drink now or anytime over the next decade, depending on how mature you like your Aussie Rieslings.
