- Eden Valley, SA
- $22-$31
- Screwcap
- 12.0%alc

mesh could be considered something of a modern day Australian super wine. Its decorated achievement is the combined efforts of two doyens of Australian riesling; Jeffrey Grosset of Grosset and Robert Hill-Smith of Yalumba, a pair of guys who know more about making riesling than reality shows do blunders.

Attractively limey on first sniff, the 2009 mesh unravels a fine, floral presentation of apple blossom, chalk, wet slate and mineral aromas. Packed with mineral accented, green apple and lime citrus flavour, it's initially quite upfront and rich for Eden Valley riesling, but it extends agreeably down the palate with tightening, drying length and an even coverage of well defined, chalky citric acids underscored by lingering grapefruit/lime juice qualities.

ü+ For $25 it's always a pleasure to taste Jeffrey Grosset toying with Eden Valley riesling. Drink to 2017.
