Other Reviews…. The grapes come from Martin and Joan Smith’s vineyard on Blue Cutting Road (a story in itself), the bony, slately soil enhancing the bouquet in a fashion unique to Polish Hill River. Pale, bright green straw, the wine has a very potent and complex bouquet with a mix of slate, blossom and bathpowder aromas, the palate adding a subliminal touch of pepper reminiscent of grüner veltliner. Screwcap.
