The story of Grosset G110
‘For 40 years, we have crushed and fermented various clones of riesling separately. These clonal components are typically blended or reunited according to the source vineyard, prior to bottling. Having a vineyard planted to a mix of clones has been shown to contribute to the consistency and complexity of our single vineyard rieslings.
Four years ago, my daughter Georgie suggested we bottle a few dozen of each riesling clone from different vineyards and taste each over time. One clone consistently expressed more concentration and persistence but was less fruity.
At our Rockwood vineyard (ACO certified organic), just one clone is planted on a strip of silty loam over red rock. The riesling berries and bunches are small. The clone is the one noted as exceptional.
In 2021 we produced just 1400 bottles of wine from these vines. In reference to my daughter Georgie and the riesling clone, the wine is simply called G110.
Powerful yet subtle, extended time on lees has enhanced the wine’s complexity, texture and distinction’. Jeffrey Grosset
