Springvale Clare Valley Riesling
Top 5% wine in the UK
Aromatic white wine
Blend: 100% Riesling
From: Australia, Clare Valley
By: Jeffrey Grosset
The Riesling vines for the Springvale Riesling were planted on red loam soils over limestone to create a typical Riesling; a vineyard mainstay. But then vines matured and hit some deeply buried Mintaro slate. Now this Riesling has a unique profile – it’s one of the five most collected white wines in Australia.
Springvale Vineyard is the highest of the four organic vineyards belonging to Jeffrey Grosset, a celebrated wine maker named Australia’s winemaker of the year in 2008, and as one of the top ten white wine makers by the UK’s Decanter magazine. The grapes for Springvale Riesling are hand picked, and transformed in an organically certified winery in Auburn. Riesling is filtered, fined and can be enjoyed now, or aged for up to twenty years.
