Only Grosset could produce a wine of this style and elegance from the Clare Valley (as opposed to cooler regions), with its vibrant lime and apple flavours, the fruit masking part, although by no means all, of the acidity. Will age wonderfully well.

Notes of fresh apples and pears with an undercurrent of honeysuckle, stainless steel and lime leaf. The palate gives just a touch of sweetness augmenting the very crisp acid with decent concentration and a good long finish.

It smells of chalk, sweet basil, apple and lime. The palate‘s elegant and tangy, offering crisp lime and apple flavour, hints of white peach, good intensity and impressive balance. Not too sweet at all.

Best ever!...pristine, pure and immaculate. Subtle, impeccably gauged sweetness and delightful, lingering minerality. An intricately crafted wine that should come with a warning: once you start it’s impossible to put down your glass.

Fresh, fragrant, young - wine aroma of floral notes and green apples. A pristine wine, very delicate and fragrant in the mouth., with the barest minimum of sweetness. Fine and long, taut and balanced; a lovely wine with a big future.

An engaging, vivacious nose and palate with talc top notes tickles and re-tickles the taste buds with tangy, super juicy layers of greengage and tropical citrus fruit.  Delicious and, like the maiden 2010, wears its 16g/l of residual sugar very lightly.

A delicate and poised wine....Beautifully aromatic, with jasmine, snowdrop and white flowers; yet concentrated, intense and succulent. Lime zest and sherbert. The balance of sweetness and acidity are exemplary.
