A swirl of the glass will unleash the potent aromas of this very different vintage of Grosset Springvale Riesling. It’s so dramatically perfumed that it’s almost overwhelming: the aromatics themselves are not so surprising – lovely florals, lemongrass, lime juice. But the sheer intensity is atypical. On the palate, too, the lime and lemon flavours are concentrated, powerful and weighty with impressive length on a fine, mouth-puckering finish featuring crisp, cleansing acidity that lingers. While it’s immediately appealing, there’s no question that this is age-worthy.
