The 2018 vintage has been another impressive one for ‘Gaia’: while it has the power, density of flavour, and structure of cabernet, it has the plush texture and the approachability of the best examples of the variety. Of course, it will soften and flesh out with good cellaring.
The Grosset Gaia 2018 has subtle dark berry aromatics, is powerful, opulent and concentrated with blackcurrant, bramble and graphite flavours and substantial, firmish tannins.
