GROSSET: THE PIONEER OF POLISH HILL

Few winemakers have carried entire regions on their back like Jeffery Grosset has in the Clare Valley. When he arrived in the 80s, Australian "Riesling" was a blend of Semillon, Pedro Ximenez and table grapes more like "California Champagne" or "hearty Burgundy" than any real Riesling. Grosset started with two single vineyard bottlings in Watervale and Polish Hill, both focused on lower yields and organic farming. Since his first vintage, he's been named the first Australian winemaker of the year, called the "acknowledged king of Australian Riesling" by Jancis Robinson, and Robert Parker consistently selected his Rieslings as the finest in Australia.

The through-line of Grosset's wine is balance. They're classically Australian but tame the shrill lime zest and petrol aromas than can dominate other wines from the area. Instead, expect aromatic notes of kefir lime, curry leaf, and orange blossom underpinned by wet stone and racy acidity. The Polish Hill is Grosset's classic bone-dry expression. His new project, Alea, riffs on the "dry" style of Europe's trocken wines, coming off as barely off-dry despite about 16 grams per liter of sugar balancing the wine's  mouth-watering acid.
