Huon Hooke, Gourmet Traveller Wine, June/July 2019
One of the classier reds of the Clare Valley, possibly thanks to the vineyard’s very high altitude. It is stylishly medium bodied, with accessibility and grace. Touches of star anise and mixed spices. A fine wine. 93 Points.
Mike Bennie, WBM, March/April 2019
A tour de force of elegance and poise, offering deep concentration, finesse of tannin, exceptional length of flavour and a cool restraint. Cassis, garrigue and faint cedar mesh well in the bouquet while the palate echoes cassis through its long draw across the palate. Ultra fine Cabernet here, and a charming drinking experience ensues. 95 Points.

Imagine Daniel Craig as James Bond, strolling onto a super yacht in Monte Carlo. That’s the same kind of effortless cool and style that you’ll find in this red blend from riesling master Jeff Grosset. Only 6,000 bottles were made of this cabernet sauvignon/cabernet franc blend which is a gentle but intense with dark berry flavours, minerally hints and a soft, smooth finish. This comes from the highest, coolest site in the Clare Valley and is a wine of impeccable balance. It is also unfined, so is suitable for vegans.
