Hands up all those who have tasted Clos St Hune. OK..thank you Mr Broadbent.
Now..the rest who haven't won't know what I am on about...but.....this wine reminds me of the aforementioned Alsatian classic in it's youth.
Now...before all you Aussies start thinking you can do something good other than play cricket...the question is...will it develope? Trimbach's Clos St Hune is closed and reserved in it's youth. Try it after 10 years and you will proclaim..'The Best Dry Riesling in The World'.....I say dry....so as not to get posts about 'sweet' wines.
Grosset Polish Hill Riesling 2006
Clare Valley, Australia
Medium pale colour (although the photo shows it as Kermit green...that was down to the plant behind)...restrained nose at first...then a touch of petroleum..or kerosene if you prefer...good sign for the future at this point....the first general impression was of pebbles....no..not the baby from the Flintstone's cartoon....the stones..and I don't mean Mick Jagger's boys.....the ones on the beach...please concentrate when reading my posts...This is DRY...and I mean DRYYYYY!..but if you fear for a mouth-puckering experience..no worries...this is minerally and dry..did I mention that?..but the acidity is so well integrated..you hardly notice. Apples, peaches, pears and a touch of lime all spring to mind...the spice of the Asian food helped it to open it's charms...but still very restrained...more to come?...anyone have experience of this wine when aged?
