Elegant, pretty and fragrantly appealing, yet possessing grand endurance, Jeffrey Grosset has created a contradiction achieved only in the most outstanding Pinots. It’s a gorgeously fragrant and fresh style of rose petal perfume, raspberry and red cherry fruit, charged with a delightful line of well-focused Adelaide Hills acidity. Tannins are very fine and velvety, yet with the confidence to unite with acidity to sustain great endurance in the cellar. 96 points, Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste Weekly.
ADELAIDE HILLSLocated to the east of Adelaide,the Adelaide Hills is part of the Mount Lofty Ranges. Considered a cool-climate region, most vineyards are situated at elevations between 450 to 550 metres. Rainfall is relatively high and spring frosts often pose problems. Hot northerly winds also make bush fires a real threat in the region. Adelaide Hills is a jigsaw of meso-climates, with the best vineyards centred around Piccadilly Valley and Lenswood in protected sites facing north or north-east. Soils are derived from schistic and sedimentary rock; typically well-drained sandy loams over red clay interspersed with schistic gravels. A premium wine-growing region, Adelaide Hills is best known for crisp, lively Sauvignon Blanc and elegant cool climates styles of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
