‘A brilliant Riesling that combines tension with power.’
Mesh is a joint venture between two of Australia’s leading exponents of Riesling, Clare Valley’s Jeffrey Grosset and Eden Valley’s Robert Hill-Smith.
Brilliant water like core with greenish tinged edges. Leaping out of the glass are intense lemon and lime scents followed by some green apple, orange rind, talc and steely mineral notes. Tense and focused yet powerful, crunchy lemon, lime and orange rind flavours are underscored by searing acidity with some green apple, chalky talc and steely mineral characteristics lingering across the back half. Finishes dry and crisp with a long sizzling mineral infused aftertaste.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
Alc. 12%

Other Reviews….
A fascinating collaboration between Clare Valley's Geoffrey Grosset and Robert Hill-Smith’s Yalumba team, both making their own cuvées from the same Eden Valley source block, then blending the parcels together. The result is an alternative take on this sub-region, speaking in a profound, serious voice. Firm acidity ensures a tight, powerful structure, with a slate and mineral tang speaking strongly in the flavour profile. A structural wine that's built to last. Drink 2023-2035.
