"Gentle lime and lemongrass aromatics, almost shy at present, precede a palate that, even at this early stage, shows evidence of its quality and impeccable balance. It has pristine lemon, lime flavours that are powerful, intense and bright. This vintage, there’s more concentration and generosity of flavour: more weight without any loss of finesse. Destined to be acknowledged as a great vintage.
Produced from riesling grown at Grosset Springvale Vineyard. Certified organic and biodynamic (ACO).

"Curiously, in 2022, I feel the Springvale is less approachable in youth than the Polish Hill. Usually, of course, it’s the other way round.
Very intense and concentrated flavour. A bomb of lime and green apple, some floral/lily perfume, a fine white pepper dusty texture, very coiled up and firm, a whisper of aniseed, maybe, and a very long finish. Unusually tight and stony for a Watervale! An outstanding vintage for this wine."

"Coiled. That's what this 2022 Springvale Riesling is. It's like a compressed spring, waiting for release. The fruit is from the Springvale vineyard and shows just how GOOD Australian Riesling is. This is textural and tight, with springboards of fruit blossom, chalk, pith and zest queued up. This is a wine that needs some time to emerge from itself, but it promises to be a superstar: Grosset has managed to wedge in some restraint and some austerity into the folds of the voluminous Clare fruit. Yikes. Awesome."

"Certified organic and biodynamic. A high-tension, fragrant Springvale release. Bright, floral perfume of lime blossom, ozone, blackcurrant and green apple. A strong spectrum of citrus flavours are the currency here: lemon, lime and a squirt of pulpy grapefruit zing with a faintly yeasty, almond-like character to finish. Quiet complexity and vitality are writ large here. Excellent."
