Even though many critics regard this wine as among the country's finest examples of the style, tasting this delicious white, it's often possible to think that it doesn't get enough credit for its quality. In years like 2012, it seems to have added another dimension to the classic Australian style. It’s so tight, nervy, fine, powerful and minerally that one of the first to taste this vintage insisted that a Riesling has been smuggled into a bracket of Sem Sauv Blancs.

Expert Reviews

Ripping release from Grosset.

No brainer. Quality is self-evident. Grass, lemon, grapefruit, slate and passionfruit. Hints at sweetness but remains dry and textural and long. Aflame with scent. Gloriously pure and pristine. Perfect in its style. Drink Rating 94 - Drink: 2012-2014 -Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front - (13/AUG/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varieties

A blend of estate-grown Clare Semillon (70%) and single-site Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc (30%).

Vintage Condition

Jeffrey Grosset believes it’s one of his best ever Semillon Sauvignon Blancs. It’s probably a wine that will age well but after it hits its straps (it’s so tightly coiled that it will improve over the next six months) few will be able to resist the temptation to drink it at its freshest and most vibrant.


The 2012 Grosset Semillon Sauvignon Blanc has delicate, restrained white flower aromatics, intense and pure white peach, nectarine and lychees flavours, a lean and taut structure before a racy finish featuring slatey natural acidity. It is juicy, tangy and exhuberant: primal, expressive and thrilling.

Cellaring Potential

Up to 5 years, more a ‘drink now’ style of wine.
