James Suckling (JS) : 98 Points (2022)
Spectacular nose with a cornucopia of delicate citrus, stone-fruit and wildflower aromas. Then, a no less stunning combination of fruit and radically slate, flint and aniseed character. Very long finish with so much energy and great minerality. Excellent aging potential! From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Robert Parker (RP) : 97 Points (2022)
The Polish Hill Riesling is muscular and defined in its structure and is routinely possessed of an authority and grace straight off the bat. This 2022 Polish Hill Riesling is mineral and fine, but phenolic and taut, too. The acidity creates tension and life in the mouth, and despite the wine being pristine, it is chalky and pithy, too. The Polish Hill Riesling has a decorated legacy and is prized for its longevity in the cellar. There have been mutterings of similarities between 2022 and the great and fabled 2002 vintage, boding very well indeed for the future of this wine. Riesling mainlines the dirt and takes us to place. This is why we gravitate toward great wine, to be taken to dirt, vineyard and region. (EL) (9/2022)

James Halliday (JH) : 95 Points (2022)
Certified organic and biodynamic. As always, an intense and concentrated expression of Clare Valley riesling. Powerful scents of mixed citrus peel, lime essence, lemongrass and ozone with faint, exotic spice and blackberry characters in the mix. The palate delivers juiciness, brightness of flavour and a little powdery grip to finish. A little more diffuse than legendary releases of this wine, the 2022 vintage feels a bit more accessible in youth. A couple of years' grace before drinking would yield additional enjoyment.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 96 Points (2018)
This is a downright beautiful, textured and highly focused expression of Riesling. The nose is more open and fruit forward than the previous vintage, bursting with freshly sliced lime, guava, flowers and streaks of stony minerals. The palate is bone dry, slippery and fresh, with bright limey fruit and an endlessly long mouthwatering finish. Drink now–2039. 

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2018)
Intense and crisp grapefruit and lime flavors show touches of lemongrass and fresh ginger, set on a light frame, with crunchy acidity and a hint of lanolin on the finish.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 93 Points (2017)
Jeffrey Grosset has been making wine from what he calls the “hard rock soils” of Polish Hill since 1981, and now farms 20 acres of riesling there, tended organically from the start. His 2017 takes the austerity typical of the wine from this site to a new level, filling the mouth with lithe flavors of white cherry and bone-dry lemon before their weight seems to evaporate, leaving all the aroma in its wake. It lasts, imprinting each breath with mineral salts, nori and lime blossom scents. An archetype of Clare riesling, Polish Hill needs to develop for ten years from the vintage before it starts to show itself completely.

Stephen Tanzer (ST) : 96 Points (2016)
Polish Hill is infused with a purity and drive that elevate it above the Clare Valley Riesling plateau, and the 2016 delivers it in a tightly coiled lime and lemon, crunchy granny smith apple and a quintessential backbone of fine, slate-infused minerality. This is a vintage of precision and stamina, with a long future before it.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 17.5 Points (2014)
Tasted Sept '14 - Actually a little softer than the Springvale at the moment. I’m sure this powdery wine will get there but it’s all over the place at the moment.
