The nose starts off with flowers and hints of oak, and then with air shows sweet, nutty spices that don't really appeal to me. It's an okay nose, I guess, it's just that those spices are a bit vulgar, for me. But the palate really works well, especially with squid and okra, showing a great mix of sour and saline sensations.
We continued on to a wine I really should buy more, of, Grosset, Polish Hill, Riesling, 2008, which has a gorgeous nose of apples and peaches, chalk and a very developed strain of petrol, which in no way overwhelms the freshness of the fruit. The palate is fresh and very vibrant, a very joyous mode of Riesling fruit, which is probably the happiest grape in the first place. This is imported by Mersch and sold for 270 NIS.
