2017 Grosset Polish Hill Riesling...$51.99
This is a ravishing riesling of the highest order, X-factor multiplied. Throw up any part (flesh, juice, skin, pith) of lime or lemons of any kind, add ethereal acidity and marvel at the elegance and length of the palate. Jeffrey Grosset is the undisputed king of the Clare Valley.
Rated 98/100 James Halliday

One of Australia's iconic Rieslings, the 2017 Polish Hill Riesling looks to be another terrific success. Youthful notes of petrichor and crushed stones surround a core of lemon and lime on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate is an impenetrably tight skein of wiry citrus flavors. Now and again, a glimpse of green apple or underripe peach pokes out, just to be reeled in and put in place by lime tendrils, which form almost endless curls on the finish.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Advocate

From one of Australia's most lauded Riesling producers, this wine is from the cool, later-ripening 2017 vintage that seems to be a triumph for the region and variety. The delicate nose chimes with echoes of lime blossoms, peach skins, lavender, talcum powder and a touch of honey, despite being bone dry on the palate. Bright, twinkly acidity is balanced by a slippery yet linear texture and a long, stoney finish. Drink now–2038.

In their top 100 wines of the year!
