Vineyards

Our four Clare Valley vineyards are in higher country, centred around Mount Horrocks, the highest point in the region. Each site was chosen and planted by Grosset. All sites are relatively isolated and cooler due to the altitude. But that’s where the similarity ends. They are extremely geologically diverse.

Grosset Polish Hill Vineyard

The Polish Hill vineyard is planted on shale and clay marl over blue slate; a 100% ‘hard rock’ site. Consisting of three riesling clones, this low-yielding vineyard produces strikingly powerful and persistent dry riesling.

Grosset Springvale Vineyard

In 2000, Grosset planted the entire Springvale vineyard to two clones of riesling. Being 100% red loam over limestone, this pure ‘soft rock’ site produces an intense and lingering lime-flavoured, dry riesling.

Grosset Gaia Vineyard

Jeffrey Grosset established the isolated and windswept Gaia Vineyard in 1986. Planted at an elevation of 570 meters, it is the highest vineyard in the Clare Valley. Consisting of two hectares of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, it is a strikingly beautiful site.

Grosset Rockwood Vineyard

Poor orange/red loam over hard red rock may not sound inviting, but Grosset planted this mini-valley over the hill from Springvale, to riesling, fiano shiraz and nero d’avola, to see what would happen. The result – Alea, G110, Apiana, Nereus.

Grosset Adelaide Hills Vineyards

Grosset Wines’ chardonnay and pinot noir grapes are grown in the Piccadilly Valley, the second coldest place in South Australia. In terms of wine quality, the rewards of working with such challenging sites have proved to be substantial.
