Wine: Grosset 'Polish Hill' Riesling 2023

Visual: A radiant, pale straw hue with a lively, shimmering edge, hinting at the wine's youthful vigor.

Nose: An entrancing bouquet, unveiling layers of lime zest, crushed wet stones, and a subtle hint of jasmine, intermingled with an ethereal whiff of white peach. The aroma suggests a crisp, mineral-driven profile with an undercurrent of floral elegance.

Palate: On the palate, the wine unfolds with a laser-like precision. The striking acidity cuts through a core of lemon curd and green apple, balanced by a hint of honeysuckle sweetness. The texture is sleek, almost weightless, yet packed with intense flavors, mirroring the wine's aromatic complexity. Mid-palate, a saline minerality emerges, reminiscent of a fresh sea breeze.

Finish: The finish is long and persistent, leaving an invigorating trace of citrus peel and a flinty, almost smoky aftertaste.

Food Pairings:

  1. Kingfish Crudo with Onion Jam, Shallots, Chive, Sesame, Chilli Aioli, XO Oil, and Citrus Dressing: The Riesling’s crisp acidity and citrus undertones will accentuate the delicate flavors of the kingfish, while the mineral aspects of the wine will complement the dish’s spicy and aromatic elements.

  2. Fresh Fig and Blood Orange with Pistachio Dukkah, Mulberries, Dried Fig, and Orange Liqueur Labneh: The wine's slight sweetness and vibrant acidity will harmonize with the sweetness of the figs and blood orange, while the complex aromatics will interact delightfully with the spiced, nutty notes of the dukkah.
