Winemaker Notes

The outstanding 2016 vintage has clarified the changing character of the Springvale. Grosset Springvale 2016 has attractive lemon blossom aromatics with a hint of chalkiness; is intensely dry and mouthpuckering in its youth; shows generous lime, lemongrass flavors again with minerally notes; and finishes dry, vibrant and long. It is poised and given neat balance by its tight structure and shaley minerally acidity.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 94
Wine & Spirits
Grown at an elevation of 1,500 feet in Watervale, the vines at Springvale benefit from the water-holding capacity of limestone under the red loam soils. They produce a generous riesling, round and juicy, smoky with brisk mineral leesiness. The chalky feel of the acidity closes off the flavors, but after each sip, the fruit seems to pull through that chalk wall, lengthening the finish with lemon zest, lemongrass and tarragon. Decant this if you open it now; best to cellar for eight years or more, to allow the wine to open.
JS 93
James Suckling
A more elegant and finer-boned riesling that has plenty of lime and apple fruit and some brighter tropical nuances too. The palate starts on a crisp apple thread, then lime and hints of pastry. Screw cap.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Succulent lime, melon and Meyer lemon flavors are precise and vibrant on a light frame, with a note of minerality and lemongrass on the finish.

Grosset, Australia
Grosset Winery Image
Grosset Wines is an independently owned winery producing seven highly regarded premium wines each vintage. Established in 1981, the winery is situated in the historic township of Auburn at the southern tip of the Clare Valley, 100 kilometres north of Adelaide.

Jeffrey Grosset, owner and founder, has always been an innovator, challenging tradition and questioning accepted practices. He campaigned to institute the legal integrity of the Riesling grape in Australia, was a leading proponent for the introduction of screwcap closures and privately funded research into the subject.

Grosset Wines’ philosophy has remained steadfast over thirty years. The emphasis is on purity of fruit. The estate vineyards, which are ACO certified organic, are hand tended and each bunch of grapes is harvested at optimum ripeness. The winemaking process is gentle and uncomplicated. With dedication, discipline and the application of knowledge garnered through decades of experience, the result is the finest expression of variety and place.

The Clare Valley is actually a series of narrow north to south valleys, each with a different soil type and slightly different weather patterns along their stretch. In the southern heartland between Watervale and Auburn, there is mainly a crumbled, red clay loam soil called terra rossa and cool breezes come in from Gulf St. Vincent. A few miles north, in Polish Hill, is soft, red loam over clay; westerlies blowing in from the Spencer Gulf influece this area's climate.

The differences in soil, elevation, degree of slope and weather enable the region to produce some of Australia’s finest, aromatic, spicy and lime-pithy Rieslings, as well as excellent Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec with ripe plummy fruit, good acid and big structure.

Clare Valley is an isolated farming country with a continental climate known for its warm and sunny days, followed by cool nights—perfect for wine grapes’ development of sugar and phenolic ripeness in conjunction with notable acidity levels.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
