The Details

Tasting Note The wine is green and vibrant in appearance. As a young wine, the aroma was zesty lemon and grapefruit with a hint of dried green herb and spice. These aromas have now been overlaid with gentle toast and spice from the ensuing years in bottle. The palate is lively and generous, with intense citrus fruit flavours and hints of sage oil and lemongrass, finishing with refreshing acidity.
Best Enjoyed With Perfect with five-spice glazed chicken or fresh gnocchi with sage and olive oil.
Treatment Clare Valley’s Jeffrey Grosset and Eden Valley’s Robert Hill-Smith work together each vintage before taking their chosen grapes – Jeffrey’s in the blue buckets and Robert’s in the yellow - and parting ways to crush and ferment the fruit at different locations. Debate follows, as the juice is assessed and the final, final, final blend is agreed upon. Each component, nearly identical at the start, undergoes a different conversion into wine, reflecting the personal differences of both men.

Accolades

A cool January produced an ideal balance of flavour and natural acidity. A fantastically youthful and dynamic 6yo riesling, upholding a vibrant, youthful, pale straw-green hue. Lime, lemon and Granny Smith apple have but begun their evolution to almond meal, spice and honey. Crystalline acidity sustains impressive line, persistence and energy. One of the greats for the cellar.
