Colour Pale-Straw
Nose There’s a vibrant quality to the fourth vintage of this unique wine from Grosset thanks to its perfumed aromatics – almond blossom and honeycomb
Palate The wine has a lively savoury palate that is viscous, textured and deep. The finish is smooth, long and satisfyingly dry.
Food Pairing soft cheeses
Cellaring 5-10 Years

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.

(2017 vintage) The graceful lily blossom and lemon of this cool Clare site defines a style of elegant precision, yet unmistakably Fiano in its subtle fruit nuances and gently textural and wondrously persistent palate. Jeffrey Grosset has honed the clones down to just two and the result is one of he most precise and downright delicious fianos i have ever tasted.

(2017 vintage) A super-stylish example of Australian fiano. The palate has a sophisticated structure with gentle texture and respectful fruitiness. I enjoy the freshness, brightness and length. An engaging example of this southern Italian variety.
