grosset pinot noir
Sale price ($) 1.95
Acclaimed Riesling-maker, Jeff Grosset, turns his hand to Pinot Noir here with exceptional results. With fruit from the high altitude region of the Adelaide Hills, the resulting Pinot Noir is ethereal, structured and superbly fragrant. Wonderful varietal definition with more than enough fruit weight balance with superb acid and complexity.
Since the first release in 1993, Grosset Pinot Noir has been made predominantly from one vineyard site, and in recent years entirely. This truly hand-crafted (and foot-plunged) pinot is subtly complex, textural and tightly structured. Like the previous vintage, the 2013 Grosset Pinot Noir appears very young on release – bright, vibrant and primal – yet showing all the signs of being an admirable example of the variety.s

|Tasting Notes||:||There is restraint on the nose, subtle black fruit aromatics, making way for flavours of blackberry, mulberry and bramble complexed by a hint of briary complexity. Even now, the texture is silky; expect age to bring a mellow, velvety quality that will flow seamlessly to a gentle finish of considerable softness and length. Importantly, it has precision and balance on a light, tight frame – just what you expect in a first rate example of the variety. There’s intensity, restrained power in the mid-palate and supple, fine tannins which grip gently.|
