"The six hectare Springvale vineyard is situated at Watervale’s highest elevation (460 metres) on a gradual mainly north-facing slope where the soil is red loam over limestone and slate. This highly sustaining profile insulates the drought sensitive riesling vines, which produce lime-green medium-sized berries.
The outstanding vintage is evident, too, in the 2014 Grosset Springvale Riesling which has impressive finesse and balance between intense primary fruit and schisty minerality. There are typically restrained aromatics, pure lime zest and lemon juice flavours with savoury overtones, taut structure and lively zingy acidity with some flinty notes to finish. This is a satisfying riesling the hallmarks of which are its generosity and harmony. It will give delight in the short term yet can be allowed to mature in a cool dark place. Cellar for 5-15 Years" - Jeffrey Grosset
"This is an exciting release. Pure Clare, pure Watervale, pure Grosset and pure riesling. Dry, chalky, talc-like and long. Sometimes dryness has a glitter to it, a cut, the sensation of quartz. It does here. Lime zest and lime juice notes give the flavours flow, run, race. Arrestingly good. 95 Points/Drink 2014-2025+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
