  • Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2016

    Adelaide Hills – 700 dozen produced This makes a powerful statement about how good chardonnay from the ultra-cool Piccadilly Valley can be. The Grosset Piccadilly, which has always drunk beautifully with age, is often shy and reserved on release. Not so here: with the riotously perfumed and intense, though delicate, primary flavours of nectarine and peach ...
  • Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2015

    Adelaide Hills – 350 dozen produced Since the first release of Grosset Piccadilly in 1993, these wines have made a powerful statement about the potential of the ultra-cool Piccadilly Valley sub-region in the Adelaide Hills. Voluminous aromas of subtle oak (that will integrate more with time) and grapefruit with some hazelnut complexity, intense, tight, and fine in ...
  • Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2014

    Adelaide Hills – 350 dozen produced With the Piccadilly Valley vineyard qualifying as one of the coolest spots in the Adelaide Hills, here a warmer season can be a positive, adding weight to a wine that remains fine and elegant. Grosset has once again made the most of both site and season. Delicately perfumed, in fact quite ...

  • Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2012

    While many people may be aware that the cool climate of the Adelaide Hills makes it more suitable for pinot noir and chardonnay than the Clare Valley, Grosset’s fascination with certain sites within the region is far less appreciated. Back in the 1990s Grosset pinpointed one site that he thought showed potential to produce distinctive, exceptional ...
  • Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2011

    Since the first release of Grosset Piccadilly in 1993, these wines have made a powerful statement about the potential of the Piccadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills, a sub-region so cool that it is often considered marginal for table wine. ‘It’s a sub-region that takes time to understand’, says Grosset, ‘and the wines can be ...

  • Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2008

    Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2008 Only 850 cases produced At first glance the 2008 Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay may appear a departure from the style established by Grosset since 1992 – as it has an initial generosity that is atypical and is more forward than these chardonnays usually are. Jeffrey Grosset isn’t at all surprised by this as ...

  • Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2006

    Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2006 The 2006 Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay has a characteristic tightness of structure, restraining the flavours in a tight coil that time will only slowly release. The cedary oak is subtle considering the wines youth – with a mere whisp of cedar setting off its cool tropical flavours. It has a delicate white peach, ...
  • Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2005

    Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2005 While this is very much in the style of the Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnays, the 2005 shows the benefit of an outstanding vintage in the Adelaide Hills. As recent vintages have shown, there is superb integration of fruit and gentle cedary oak, in this case, giving the wine a fragrant lift. The palate ...
  • Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2004

    Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay 2004 In common with recent Piccadilly Chardonnays, the 2004 vintage is lightly fragrant, although in this case it has more ripe peachy notes with overtones of fine cedary oak. There is intensity of flavour on the mid palate coiled around minerally, savoury characters before a finish which, is crisp due to the wine’s ...
