Expert Reviews

Adelaide Hills chardonnay of the best type from perfectionist maker Jeffrey Grosset. It opens with restrained fruit, leesy richness and understated complexity. Nectarine, citrus, steely and nutty notes lead into a rich, tangy palate that has lovely flavour impact without any heaviness. The finish is very long and bone-dry.

Rating 5 Stars - Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age, Epiqure (24/APR/2012)

The Piccadilly Valley is the coolest part of the Adelaide Hills, always reflected in this wine, but seldom more than this vintage. Has exceptional fruit intensity and focus, the flavours ricocheting around the mouth, drawing saliva as they do so, and covering all the bases from grapefruit through to white peach and nectarine. Obviously, the wine has been barrel-fermented in French oak, but this, at best, provides one part of the structural framework, more coming from the fruit and acidity.

Rating 96 - Drink by 2019 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

The hallmark of this 2010 chardonnay from the Adelaide Hills’ Piccadilly Valley is its purity of fruit.

There are intense nectarine, white peach and grapefruit flavours, all tightly coiled and vibrant in the mid-palate, seamlessly integrated so that it shows little evidence of its cedary oak. There are some quartzy, minerally notes on its long, zesty finish.

It has the purity of flavour, weight, tightness of structure and bright natural acidity to suggest it will age as well as previous vintages of the Grosset ‘Piccadilly’ Chardonnay.
