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.
