2022 Grosset Riesling, Springvale, Clare Valley, Southern Australia, Australia – WBM96, WA95+



Grosset Wines was established in 1981 when our founder Jeffrey Grosset purchased an old milk depot in the historic township of Auburn, Clare Valley.

Grosset Wines is a small family-run operation entering its fifth decade. The unwavering vision is to create pure expressions of variety and place.  Our four estate-owned vineyards, A-Grade Certified Organic and Biodynamic (ACO), are located in high altitude country of the Clare Valley, each site selected for its potential to produce great wine and planted by Grosset. Each is handpicked and hand pruned; each bunch of grapes harvested at optimum ripeness.

Production is tiny. Single vineyard wines are the focus. The winemaking process is gentle and uncomplicated. Custodianship remains with Grosset Wines from grape growing to in-house bottling; authenticity is assured.

Produced from riesling grown at Grosset Springvale Vineyard, an A-Grade Certified Organic and Biodynamic (ACO) vineyard.  Unfined.

“Gentle lime and lemongrass aromatics, almost shy at present, precede a palate that, even at this early stage, shows evidence of its quality and impeccable balance. It has pristine lemon, lime flavors that are powerful, intense and bright. This vintage, there’s more concentration and generosity of flavor: more weight without any loss of finesse. Destined to be acknowledged as a great vintage.”

“Coiled. That’s what this 2022 Springvale Riesling is. It’s like a compressed spring, waiting for release. The fruit is from the Springvale vineyard and shows just how GOOD Australian Riesling is. This is textural and tight, with springboards of fruit blossom, chalk, pith and zest queued up. This is a wine that needs some time to emerge from itself, but it promises to be a superstar: Grosset has managed to wedge in some restraint and some austerity into the folds of the voluminous Clare fruit. Yikes. Awesome. 2022-2042” – 95+ points, Erin Larkin – Wine Advocate
“A textbook Springvale of fantastic purity and precision, celebrating a stunning season in pristine granny smith apple, lime and lemon fruit that carries with impeccable mineral tension, vibrant acidity and outstanding persistence. One of the greats.” October 22 – Tyson Stelzer – WBM 96 / 100 (Wine Business Magazine)
