Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands.

The Eden Valley is cool and wet, soils tend to be skeletal and minerally, a major determinant to growing Riesling. Care is taken in every step of the vine cycle, hand pruning, careful selection of picking time and many hours of nurturing throughout the year all contribute to the wonderful results found in the bottle. Grapes are predominantly sourced from the Storton Vineyard, located just outside the township of Eden Valley. Quick separation of the juice from the skins gives the purest juice possible. A long cool ferment and prompt separation from the yeast lees has given a truly vibrant Riesling of classical style. Bottled very early to capture all the fresh citrus/lime characters and to hold the crisp finish.
Pale straw hues. A bouquet of citrus, passionfruit and lavender. A profuse palate of limes and mineral on a precise acid line. Tight, dry and zingy, spectrums of bright citrus florals with green pear and quartz. Palate is creamy and textural, showing classical, stylish refinement in the middle, balancing as it closes on a dry, refined finish. A wonderful aperitif, the wine of choice alongside tempura battered flathead fillets.
