Grosset Polish Hill Riesling

The 2002 vintage has been hailed as one of the great vintages of this wine, and the 2002 Grosset Polish Hill Riesling does not disappoint. The colour is clean and a transparent golden. The fruit flavours are still there; citrus and pear, and the wine has gained some volume in the mouth. There is additional complexity with light toast and almond flavours. This wine has great intensity and drive, and there is enough acidity to give it a balanced structure. The wine is silky and finishes long and satisfying.

This is definitely one of the best dry Rieslings ever made in Australia. Unfortunately, this was my last bottle from 2002.

Score: 96/+++
