For more than twenty-five years sourced from the cool Piccadilly Valley, Grosset Pinot Noir beautifully fits into that ‘special’ category of bright, complex, uplifting and pristine pinot noir. At its finest pinot noir is a textural wine. From the first mouthful to the last, the Grosset Pinot Noir 2018 exemplifies this, hand harvested, foot plunged day and night, matured in French oak. It is beguiling, intense and delicious it has marvellous concentration, delightful mouth-feel with mulberry and red currant flavours that linger. The finish is crisp and fine, pure and long and enhanced by bright natural acidity and soft, silky tannins.
