The 2016 continues the run of outstanding vintages for the wine and maintains its distinctive style. This year, it is quite different from 2015’s 75:25 blend with 50% Clare Valley semillon and 50% Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc. The wine’s finesse and style remain although the higher percentage of sauvignon blanc gives it more primal fruit characters.
Grosset Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2016 has attractive white floral and fresh herb aromatics and a tight core of pure nectarine and white peach flavours which give a pleasing mid-palate tang. The finish is zesty, powerful and of considerable length; an impressive release.
The volume is down with just 500 cases released in 2016.
