The difference in terroir between the Polish Hill with shale and slate soils and the soft rock soils at Watervale, shows through on the 2001 Polish Hill Riesling. With a lovely perfume developing on the nose redolent of jasmine, orange blossom preserve, kumquat, some apple tart notes and touch of tatami mat, the wine is still very tight and crisp in the mouth but approachably so. It finishes very dry and long with layered flavors. Drink it now to 2021+.

Light green-yellow; a very restrained, dry, minerally bouquet with touches of herb is followed by a fresh, still neutral palate, like a young Semillon, austere and delicate, finishing with crisp acidity. The track record of these wines leaves not doubt it will blossom with time in bottle, but, in the interim, the Watervale, at a lower price, has the greater appeal. Drink to 2014.
