James Halliday 97 points. Produced from mature vines in a region originally selected for this variety, Forest Hill's Block 1 Riesling has gained world-wide recognition and support. The grapes from Block 1 result in wines of outstanding varietal flavours, true to Mount Barker. Fermented with wild yeasts to add palate richness and complexity while softening the vibrant, crisp natural acidity, the Forest Hill Rieslings are enhanced by a long, lingering, often flinty finish, ensuring wonderful graceful ageing.
James Halliday 95 points. "Mainly from Block 2 (planted '75), plus a smaller amount from younger estate blocks. Picked and sorted by hand, mostly whole-bunch pressed, a small portion crushed and destemmed before pressing. This is very good, with riesling flaunting its varietal wares. Block 1 needs at least a decade to release its treasures, but here they're ready to start now."
94 points, Nick Stock for James Suckling.com. This is another extraordinary and very rare riesling from this remarkable producer. Only 111 dozen made. Bright pale straw with green hues. Lifted aromas of citrus zest, grapefruit, subtle yellow fruits, and wet stones. The palate is racy and textured from the extended contact on lees with serious intensity. Only 111 doz. Hand-picked and sorted. Several picks ensure optimal ripeness across Block 2, however only the best parcels made this wine. The grapes are whole bunch pressed then chilled and settled. Juice racked to stainless for fermentation with higher solids. These parcels were kept...
Buy one of these and join us for a PRIVATE tasting with Jeff Grosset online on Thursday 11 June at 19h00 Singapore time. The Grosset Springvale 2019 is being tasted at the same time. Most would consider that Grosset Polish Hill is always produced from low yielding vines, so what happens when the Clare Valley’s lack of winter rain results in the ‘lowest yielding vintage for decades’.? Something special. There are subtle yet distinct floral aromatics of violets and lavender, lemon and lime blossom perfumes that persist. This is different from the restraint and shyness of most ‘Polish Hill’ Riesling on release – and worth...
Buy one of these and join us for a tasting with Jeff Grosset online on Thursday 11 June at 19h00 Singapore time. Flies in on or before 1 June in time for the tasting The Grosset Polish Hill 2019 is being tasted at the same time. 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. That’s how the lowest yielding harvest in decades reveals itself. On the palate, too, the lime and lemon...
95 Points 1940s vines. Textural, powerful, persistent. Lime juice and crystals, talc and spice, mineral. A hint of orange blossom. A trace of fruit sweetness. It’s pretty and it’s purposeful and it feels soft as it extends along your tongue. A treat of a wine. Halliday Wine Companion.
James Halliday 93 points. "A fine free-flowing riesling oozing orange blossom, lime cordial, lemon drop, quince and apricot pith. No hard edges from overly zealous tweaking in the winery, either. A lovely drink framed by a maritime salinity and juicy acidity." Ned Goodwin Published 01 August 2019 COLOUR Crisp fresh straw. NOSE Vibrant aromas of orange blossom and lemon zest and floral tones. PALATE Vibrant flavours of citrus and rose petal on the palate leading to a crisp lemon finish. The mouth feel is balanced between natural acidity and the fruit weight.
