‘The Springvale vineyard is unique on two fronts: First, its odd shape accurately reflects the red loam-over-limestone profile below. Under this limestone is slate, its existence discovered by us only after the vine roots had reached that far. Second, the mix of riesling clones is rare. The result is a deliciously limey riesling with backbone.’ JG

(2017 vintage) Quite a delicate expression but not without drive, energy and velocity. It’s pretty in floral notes, lime-lime blossom scents, a touch of flinty mineral character. Quite succulent, just a kiss of flinty-chalkiness to texture, bristling with tangy acidity, long, fine, and elegant feeling. A little out of step for typical Springvale, but delightful in its way. Crackling mineral character throughout. Crystalline, classy riesling.
