This blend of fiano and semillon is a welcome addition to the Grosset range. The 2014 Grosset Apiana has initial restraint with dried herb and beeswax aromas and impressive weight and power in a dry, savoury mid-palate. There’s mouth-puckering intensity, generosity of flavour and lively zesty acidity. Fascinatingly different.

This is the first release of a new white from the Grosset vineyard, a blend of fiano and semillon, and while it’s only available direct from the winery, it’s worth tracking down: a delicious balance of grape-pulpy richness and crisp freshness.
Tyson Stelzer ‘WBM’ February 2015
An all-new blend for Grosset, capturing the essence of fiano, energised with the zest and definition of semillon, producing a delightfully food-friendly and versatile blend of purity, freshness and beautifully textural mouthfeel. 94 Points.
