Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2013
Grosset Wines philosophy has remained steadfast over thirty years. The emphasis is on purity of fruit. The organically managed vineyards are hand tended, and each bunch of grapes is harvested at optimum ripeness. The winemaking process is gentle and uncomplicated. With dedication, discipline and the application of knowledge garnered through decades of experience, the result is the finest expression of variety and place.
The Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2013 is gently fragrant with hints of cedar and grapefruit citrus. On the palate, it is wonderfully viscous, rich, concentrated and powerful with its tight, linear structure driving the tangy flavours – white peach, nectarine, candied grapefruit – towards a finish which zings with natural acidity and lingers. At present, it’s fresh, youthful and vibrant with primary flavours neatly balanced by well-integrated cedary oak.
500 dozen produced. Partial malo. Grosset has been making a Piccadilly Chardonnay since 1993. There’s no lack of power here but it’s also a wine of delicacy. It’s a lovely style. It displays flavours of seashells and slate, lactose and citrus, with grapefruit and creamy oak layered through the finish. Cutting acidity but it doesn’t leave the flavour behind. Needs more time in bottle but class is clear. Rated : 95 Points Tasted : Dec14 Alcohol : 13.5% Price : $62 Closure : Screwcap Drink : 2016 - 2024 Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
