Grosset Polish Hill Riesling 1997

Here's another review of an icon Australian wine, again tasted blind. The 1997 tasted was bottled under cork, and there was a little bit of variability between the bottles. The 1997 vintage is now deeply coloured with an aroma of toasted honeyed bread and a kerosene like note. The palate was similar, with a refined balance. A very good wine, though I would have preferred it slightly younger and fresher in this case. 86 points.
