The wheel has turned full circle with this vibrantly juicy and penetrating wine (looking back to the early 1970s), the fruit reluctantly yielding to crisp acidity on the finish and lingering aftertaste.

It has a fresh, floral nose leading on to a fine citrus palate, softened nicely by a light sweet touch and an excellent long mineral finish.

This pitch perfect, precise wine has Grosset written all over it...Its honey-tinged super-juicy, tangy yellow plum and greengage fruit has a pronounced slatey minerality. Very, very drinkable.

It opens with pristine varietal fruit at the core. Musky floral aromas and assorted citrus scents are present. Sweetness acts to emphasise the fruit, rather than as a flavouring agent in itself. It has superb balance of delicate fruity flavours and zippy acidity in the mouth. Delicious.

Jeffrey Grosset's first kabinett-style Riesling is a cracker, with aromas of orange blossom and exotic spices, and vibrant flavours of pink grapefruit.

Pitch perfect & precise: Jeffrey Grosset Off Dry Riesling 2010

The nose reveals fruit of a different order than I expect from the typically citrus fuelled Clare Valley Riesling, showing pears, greengage and hints of apple blossom. A tight knit, juicy palate with a real drive of acidity initially disguises its sweetness, which is then deliciously teased out over a long, persistent and precise finish inveigled with honey and minerals... Terrific.

A complex, multilayered, charming Cabernet-based red ...The wine has good backbone, intensity and a multiplicity of flavours revolving around red and black fruits, savoury oak-derived characters and spices.

Pretty, floral, pure Riesling with a compelling presence, lemon juice minerality with a pinpoint of apparent sweetness to lift the wines but not separate it. Pure, long-finishing, granny smith apple-like pleasure.

Lots of lime and green-herb aromas, tangy in the mouth with a touch of sweetness, counter-balanced by brisk acidity.

Issue 192

It gives intense lime juice, lemon curd and pie crust aromas with touches of acacia honey and wet pebbles. The light-bodied palate has very high acidity nicely off-set by the touch of sweetness and wrapped well with plenty of citrus flavours. It has a long zesty finish.

Jeffrey Grosset has really pulled off this style. Deep and super pure: there's crystal-clear citrus, also a little more exotic fruit - a hint of creaminess. It's super zippy, tangy, tastes of lime and white nectarine, and steely also, with the sweetness carrying everything lightly and gently. Finishes with mouthwatering clarity.

A delicious drop.
