James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion:

"A super-elegant, beautifully balanced and poised riesling that becomes steadily more impressive with each sip, the flavours of lime and lemon wreathed by slatey acidity. It has years of improvement in front of it, but one can hardly be blamed for enjoying it now." Reviewed September 2014

Tyson Stelzer - Tysonstelzer.com:

"In fragrance, purity, energy and slatey mineral texture, Polish Hill transcends a season of extreme heat and rain. The riesling of the year to date, and set to live confidently for the long-term. " March 2015

Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front:

"Grosset Polish Hill riesling with a bit of flesh. Pale straw-green, good amount of pulpy lime flavour, exceptionally dry, slatey finish and thrilling length. Weight of flavour but undeniably structural/architectural. Gravitas. Commands attention. " Reviewed August 2014

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The Riesling Polish Hill presents a very attractive nose filled with citrus and floral aromas set off by notes of herbs, fennel, coriander seed and a touch of wet pebbles. Light-bodied and dry, the palate reveals intense flavors enlivened by seamless acidity and a long finish with a mineral note." Reviewed July 2014

Huon Hooke - www.huonhooke.com:

"A fragrant aroma incorporating dried flowers or pot pourri, with some dried herb and lemon citrus notes. Tight and fine, intense and lively with lots of energy. Searing intensity powered by acid. A racy, bracing wine that promises to be a long keeper." Reviewed 10/23/14

Wine Spectator:

"Lean, lithe, sleek and focused, with lively acidity playing against apple, clove, sassafras and floral flavors, dancing lightly through the long finish. Drink now through 2024. 3,200 cases made."

Product Description:

"The eight hectare Polish Hill vineyard is at 460 metres altitude and just kilometres from Springvale as the crow flies (but eleven kilometres by car). The infertile, shaley soil is slightly acidic and its topsoil has a clay and shale crust. The vines have to work harder than those at Springvale and so produce smaller distinctly flavoured and concentrated berries. The 2014 Grosset Polish Hill Riesling surprises with voluminous lemon blossom aromas bursting from the glass. Then it’s supple and round initially on the palate giving a delightful mouthfeel before the more characteristic power and tight, steely structure kicks in reminding you that this is Polish Hill. The primary flavours are more evident than is often the case with wonderfully pure lime juice and lemongrass before a finish that has a surprising softness. Certainly, there’s refreshingly dry and vibrant cleansing acidity and some shaley minerality on a finish of remarkable persistence and length." Winery Notes
