"Springvale is a six hectare vineyard and part of a much larger property at Watervale in the Clare Valley. Grosset Springvale Riesling is produced entirely from Springvale Vineyard.
A truly unique viticultural site due to its geology, relative isolation and high altitude, it was purchased by Grosset in 1999 and planted in 2000. The thin topsoil is made up of red loam over limestone, and, atypical for this sub-region, the vines are deeply rooted in slate bedrock. There is a north-south fault line on the eastern border, limiting the vineyard’s expansion. This formation dates back many hundred million years. Vineyard rows are oriented to optimise sunshine.
Springvale is an ACO certified organic and biodynamic vineyard. The soil is not worked." -- Winery
