With its first vintage in 2012, ‘Alea’ is the most recent addition to the Grosset stable. Made in the style of the Rieslings of Germany and Austria, it has attractive lemon blossom on a first swirl, there’s a hint of ripe citrus followed by a delicious layered lemon, lime palate. The power and depth of lemongrass flavours will surely make it a match for the more subtle Vietnamese dishes: a satisfying, expressive wine of great finesse.

(2016 vintage) The 2015 release raised the bar for Grosset Alea Riesling and this 2016 matches it, at the very least. It’s stellar. It brings orange blossom to the table of lime and lemon, and builds a bolt of intense flavour to both the mid palate and to the finish. It’s a ‘you won’t be disappointed’ wine.
