This might well be the best Grosset riesling for some years; it has the classic Watervale form of stern chalky phenolics and a rapier of steely acidity without too much simple lime or lemon, but just the right amount.

'Two of Jeffrey Grosset's trio of 2013 rieslings reveal different faces of the Clare Valley's sub-regions – Watervale and Polish Hill River. The third, Alea, demonstrates the easy-drinking pleasure of crisp, off-dry riesling – though I suspect this style will be better from much cooler regions, like Tasmania (or Germany's Mosel and Rhine rivers). Grosset's Springvale, from Watervale, starred in a pre- Christmas riesling tasting, appealing for its juicy, limey delicacy – a wine of enormous appeal now, both with years of cellaring ahead. In a New Year tasting, Grosset Polish Hill appealed for its intensity and steely backbone – a wine for the long haul.'
