The Collective Review

This surprises with its almost riotous aromatics.

Delightful floral aromas with hints of lime juice and beeswax - though it's white flowers that dominate. It's almost joyful or playful.

On the palate, tight, fine and intense; a pure and unevolved thread of lime juice at its core.

It has depth of flavour and intensity in its infancy with the suggestion that these will become hallmarks of the aged wine. And the aromatics!

The cool, late vintage and reduced yield come together in a glorious riesling that is so delicious now it will be hard to give it the 10 or so years that will see it develop even more ravishing flavours and a lingering caress of silvery acidity. Read more

Polish Hill is the counterpoint to Spring Vale, where Watervale's lavish jonquil floral rose florals are countered with tense varietal purity of lime and lime blossom aromas and depth. Springvale has a remarkable ginger spice, a feature of the 23 vintage and is also recommended. The Polish Hill v23 wine has minerality and line typical of the region with excellent texture, flavour length, fruit weight and generosity with lavish fruit yet still focused and long with delicious flavour intensity and a slight firmness that augurs well for a long life.

Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front

Grosset’s Polish Hill is renowned for its reserve, particularly on release, but this rendition has both its quality and its fruit intensity sitting front and centre. This really does announce itself. Flavours of lemon, lime, grapefruit, chalk and citrus blossom explode onto the palate in the most commanding and authoritative of ways, and then extend (mighty) lengthily through the finish. It’s a lay down misére. It’s scented, intense and sustained. It’s a wine of great beauty. Date: Sept 2023; Alcohol: 12.9%; Price: $80; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2023-2042;

Nick Ryan - The Australian

The Australian riesling by which all others are measured, Jeffrey Grosset’s achingly pure and laser etched wine is as thrilling as it is delicious. The wine hums with vibrant lime juice and zest characters, backed up with fine white floral aromatics and a finish of uncommon length and focus.

Mike Bennie - Halliday's Wine Companion

An outstanding release of this vaunted wine. It's intense, it's racy, it's complex and nuanced in its fruit, spice, mineral and subtle savoury elements, all of it woven into an extremely persistent and poised textural experience. There's stacks of flavour in all this, yet held within a tensile thrust of raciness and faint chalky pucker. And long, very long. One for the ages here.
