A Riesling of extraordinary concentration, but in the most delicate, refined way imaginable – characteristics suggested by the lovely aroma and confirmed by the powerful, fine, luscious, absolutely bone-dry palate. This is as good as Australian Riesling gets at present…

97 Points - Tyson Stelzer

Delicacy, grace and understated character define an exceptionally pure and pristine Polish Hill whose greatness is declared as much by what it is not as what it is. Mouth-enveloping texture declares the ancient soils of Polish Hill. Length is undeterred, line undeviating and sheer stamina and poise, breathtaking.

Producer

Jeffrey Grosset of Grosset Wines was an oenology student who spent many years working in the wine industry before establishing his own winery; Grosset Wines back in 1981. He has since been making some of Australia's best Riesling and won the accolade of ‘Riesling Winemaker of the Year’ in Hamburg, Germany in 1998 which, alongside his Polish Hill Riesling being rated exceptional in the Langton’s Classification (a feat only managed by 2 other white wines) makes this winemaker something pretty special. The winery is based in a picturesque old butter and ice factory in the southern tip of the Clare Valley, just north of Adelaide.

The philosophy of Grosset Wines is based around the purity of the fruit; the certified organic vineyards are handpicked only when at optimum ripeness and the winemaking process is both simple and gentle with the aim of preserving the wines character and individuality.

Their purity, precision and consistently outstanding quality have made Grosset wines what they are today – among the World’s finest examples of Riesling.

Region

Clare Valley is the northernmost wine region in South Australia and is noted for being both one of the oldest wine regions and for being one of the most picturesque wine making regions in the country. The region is best known for its Riesling wines - the drier styles are recognized as some of the best of the world due to their range and depth of classic Riesling flavours – exotic citrus, orange blossom, lime and apple with a good minerality and crisp acidity. The regions red wines are also highly regarded and easily compete with some of the best wines produced in Australia. The wines are generally based around Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals and blends and have a deep colour and heavy concentration of flavours. The wines from Wendouree come highly recommended and prove that this wine making region is capable of producing some very special wines.
