With a lineage stretching back more than twenty-five years Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay has helped to establish the tiny Picadilly Valley as one of the best places to grow chardonnay in Australia. The reputation of this wine has been, at least in part, built on its age-worthiness.

There’s an immediacy to the Grosset Chardonnay 2018 with bright, vibrant aromatics that are ripe yet restrained – nectarine, white peach and grapefruit. These characters give intensity and weight to the mid-palate with complexity added by hints of cashew and hazelnut. There’s finesse and balance before a crisp, zesty finish that lingers long and pure. Delicious now yet all signs are there that this will develop into an impressive, complex and mature chardonnay
