Grosset Polish Hill Riesling, 2018
#4 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wines of 2019
There’s a hint of talc and Provencal lavender and some vibrant herb aromas with a tight, intense mid-palate that features pure lime juice flavors. Mouth-puckering with a hint of lemon pith and shaley minerality, it’s long, uber-dry and memorable. While plenty love the youthful tight structure and restraint of ‘Polish Hill’, others will prefer it after a few years in the cellar. It has the potential for significant aging.
Wine Enthusiast (96 points)
This is a downright beautiful, textured and highly focused expression of Riesling. The nose is more open and fruit forward than the previous vintage, bursting with freshly sliced lime, guava, flowers and streaks of stony minerals. The palate is bone dry, slippery and fresh, with bright limey fruit and an endlessly long mouthwatering finish. Drink now–2039.
Wine Spectator (90 points)
Intense and crisp grapefruit and lime flavors show touches of lemongrass and fresh ginger, set on a light frame, with crunchy acidity and a hint of lanolin on the finish.
