Tasting Notes

Colour None
Nose the spirit retains the subtle perfume and character of the wine. There are no botanicals used, nor is there colour or flavour added; the result is a unique spirit that is 100% pure.
Palate Perfumed, clean and ethereal, delicate and harmonious, with a luxuriously smooth mouth feel: to quote prominent drinks writer Matthew Jukes (UK)… ‘one of the most enchanting and silky of all digestifs.’
Food Pairing soft cheeses
Cellaring 15+ Years
Notes Following the successful release of batch one in 2015 (which sold out in six months), batch two has been released. Jeffrey Grosset’s fascination with the ancient art of distillation has led to the creation of a unique spirit from Riesling.

Clare Valley
Situated in the Mid North of South Australia, approximately 120 km north of Adelaide is one of Australia's oldest wine regions the Clare Valley. The area is broken up into three sub-regions, the Polish Hill River region to the east, the Central Clare Valley, and the Skillogalee Valley to the west.



Often associated with some of Australia's finest Riesling the cool climate and differing terroirs have paved the way for exciting and diverse wines over a plethora of varietals resulting in wines of pure expression and great length. Home to some of Australia's most iconic wineries - cult producers like Wendouree, to Australian icons such as Kilikanoon and boutique producers like Atlas, the Clare Valley is definitely an area to keep an eye on for exciting and ever evolving wines.

The latest – utterly delicious – Australian spirit to pass my lips is Grosset45. It was made by Clare Valley winemaker Jeff Grosset, famous for his Polish Hill and Springvale rieslings, and is a pure, fragrant, very fine, slightly opalescent eau-de-vie-like spirit distilled from – you guessed it – Riesling.

…The trick, Grosset realised, was to start with the best wine possible, and to ensure it had no sulphur dioxide preservative added to it, as the sulphur results in course flavours. “It’s like cooking when you think about it’” he says. “The better quality of the raw ingredients, the better the outcome at the end of the process.”
