Grosset Nereus 2016
Awards & Reviews:
James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020, 1st August 2019
There is only a touch of nero d’Avola with the shiraz that makes this wine so individual. It is luscious and rich, complexity courtesy of finishing fermentation in French barriques (35% new) and maturation in barrel for 18 months. The velvety mid-palate is trimmed on the finish by a savoury/licorice twist adding yet further to an already complex wine. 96 Points.
Huon Hooke, The Real Review, 7th October 2018
Deep, youthful red/purple colour with a plummy, fruit-driven aroma which is fresh and bright. Dry spice and walnut overtones. The wine is medium to full-bodied and supple, nicely modulated and even across the tongue. The flavours are harmonious and the texture appealing, with length and balance and good immediate appeal as well as cellaring potential. Sweet fruit core; elegance and restraint. A lovely wine. 93 Points.
