Expert Reviews

As ever, totally immaculate handling of oak and fruit alike; a seamless flow of gentle citrus and herb flavours through the long palate and finish. Rating 95 - James Halliday - Wine Companion Published on 20 Jul 2011

A perennial favourite, Jeffrey Grosset blends 55 per cent Clare Valley Semillon and 45 per cent Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc to tirelessly good effect in his only blended white cuvee. His 2006 is an elegantly flavoured, restrained dry white, showing cool tropical fruit aromas, some gooseberry, guava and grassy aromatic lift. The palate is beautifully integrated, flavoured with lemon citrus and some.Nick Stock

Sumptuous Summer 2006

Winery Tasting Notes

The style remains distinctly different from the archetypal Margaret River semillon sauvignon blanc – as it is tighter, finer, more steely, and more minerally than those popular everyday drinking whites.

The 2006 has many of the hallmarks of the previous vintage but is more intense, juicier and more zesty than that wine. It has restrained yet intense cool tropical characters – guava, nectarine, lychees – and a minerally edge. There is a finesse to match the tight structure, a plump fruitiness in the mid-palate, and taut, zesty acidity. At present, it opens up considerably after 24 hours suggesting that, with six months in bottle, it will show more delicious refined fruit characters.
