Grosset Wines Piccadilly Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2012 Vintage) says
A delightfully refined release for Grosset, a chardonnay of graceful perfume and impeccable poise. Breathtaking lemon blossom, grapefruit and red apple aromas introduce a palate of pinpoint accuracy, propelled by perfectly supportive, integrated oak, laced into seamless harmony by a silk thread of impeccable acidity. At a total production of just 400 dozen, you’d better be quick.
Wine Taste Weekly 2014
Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
Stylish and savoury with a chalky bouquet of crytalline grapefruit, melon and cumquat-lime fruit backed by nuances of cinnamon and lime. Medium to full-bodied, it's fine and elegant despite a generous juicy richness bordering on fatness that is tightly reined inby fresh, nervy acids. Long and refined, its remarkably clear flavour of citrus and melon are underpinned by a powdery minerality, finishing with genuine focus and balance.
The Australian Wine Annual 2014 Edition
Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
The precision of Jeffrey Grosset is as apparent in his Adelaide Hills chardonnay as it is in his revered Clare rieslings. In 2010 it carries beautiful definition of finely perfumed lemon and grapefruit, pristine white peach and notes of almond blossom, underlined by exceedingly classy and restrained almond and cashew nut French oak. High altitude acidity and mineral texture unite to create a pure and massaged mouthfeel.
2013 - 2018
James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
The Piccadilly Valley is the coolest part of the Adelaide Hills, always reflected in this wine, but seldom more than this vintage. Has exceptional fruit intensity and focus, the flavours ricocheting around the mouth, drawing saliva as they do so, and covering all the bases from grapefruit through to white peach and nectarine. Obviously, the wine has been barrel-fermented in French oak, but this, at best, provides one part of the structural framework, more coming from the fruit and acidity.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Quartz-green; a crisp, incisive and pure bouquet is precisely reflected by the palate, its grapefruit and mineral characters bordering on the austere, like a fine Corton or Chablis.
Australian Wine Companion 2012
James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Pale yellow-green; the fragrant bouquet of white peach, citrus and subtle oak tells you what is to come on the long, elegant palate with its fusion of white peach, grapefruit and fine oak.
Australian Wine Companion 2011 2010
James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Ripe stone fruits, and flashy oak aromas evident in this complex wine; more citrus comes through on the palate, and there is great drive through to the ample, yet fine, long and minerally finish.
Australian Wine Companion 2009 2008
James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Brilliant green-yellow; fine, elegant and intense; long and very pure nectarine and grapefruit; immaculate oak handling.
Australian Wine Companion 2007 2006
Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
A particularly stylish, smooth and seamless chardonnay of elegance, brightness and intensity. Its delicate floral perfume of pear, apple and white peach is enhanced by tightly integrated vanilla and spicy oak, with creamy, leesy nuances of cashew and wheatmeal. Long and silky, it effortlessly delivers pristine, vibrant chardonnay fruit, culminating in a lingering finish of soft acids and faint undertones of sweet corn.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Stylish and fragrant; incisive melon and stone fruit with seamless oak; clean, lingering finish.
Australian Wine Companion 2006 2005
Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
Seamlessly elegant chardonnay with a complex and restrained bouquet of peach, melon and grilled nuts, fine-grained vanilla oak and a hint of lanolin. Its stylish, silky palate presents a bright core of peach, nectarine and tropical fruit delivered with a delicate, fluffy texture. Tightly knit with creamy oak and fine phenolics, it's the finest chardonnay yet from this maker.
Australian Wine Annual 2005 2004
James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light to medium green-yellow; a distinctly Burgundian and very complex, tangy bouquet is followed by an equally complex palate in both texture and flavour; creamy/cashew characters marry neatly with the melon and stone fruit; subtle oak.
Australian Wine Companion 2004 2003
James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; in mainstream Grosset style, the bouquet offers a subtle mix of cashew, fig, melon and stone fruit, characters which are faithfully reproduced on the very long and immaculately balanced palate.
