Grosset Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2015
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 semillon is Clare Valley, sauvignon blanc is Adelaide Hills. “The sauvignon blanc is so powerful”, says Jeffrey Grosset. And so it is. It’s been a work in progress since 1991, but the idea was settled on a blend with ideal sourcing of grapes from ‘best region for each variety’ from Grosset’s sites. Builds in intensity. Smells like passionfruit, green melon, grass and herbs. Punches across the palate but retains great thirst slaking freshness and a little squeak of mineral-laden acidity. Good feel here. Complex, yet very pure. Alcohol : 12.5%; Price : $36; Closure : Screwcap; Drink : 2015 - 2020; Rated : 93 Points; Mike Bennie; The Wine Front
