Since the first release of Grosset Piccadilly in 1993, these wines have made a powerful statement about the potential of the Piccadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills, a sub-region so cool that it is often considered marginal for table wine. ‘It’s a sub-region that takes time to understand’, says Grosset, ‘and the wines can be exquisite’.

From the exceptionally cool Piccadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills, this chardonnay is deliberately restrained. Succulent white peach, melon and grapefruit characters create a mineral, focused wine that is fresh and refined, with a deep underlying complexity.

Expert Reviews

Grosset’s rieslings grab all the attention but his Adelaide Hills chardonnay is right up there among them in quality terms.

I fell quickly in love with this 2011 release though it does have a thread of acidity dangling throughout the finish. Spicy oak, dry pears, citrus and smoky, slatey notes. Grainy texture. Gorgeous in so many ways.

Rating 92+ Campbell Mattinson,, 17 February 2013

The 2011 Piccadilly Chardonnay reveals pretty green apple, white peach and lemon curd notes with a touch of creaminess. With a good concentration of citrus flavour and just a hint of oak and yeastiness, it is crisp, tight and well-balanced with a bit more mineral and citrus character than the 2010. It finishes long. Drink it now to 2017. Rating 91 - Drink: 2013 - 2017 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (FEB/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

There’s a delicacy about the 2011 Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay that is rare with Australian chardonnay:


It is delightfully fragrant with white flowers and fresh herbs.


The palate is fresh, vibrant and tangy with intense white peach and nectarine flavours that show depth and purity. There’s succulence, a taut structure, and bright zesty acidity to finish. Although restrained, the wine builds in the glass.
