Grosset 2021 Piccadilly Chardonnay


Jeffrey Grosset is the high priest of Clare Valley riesling, producing a stunning range of styles from various sites, using organics, biodynamics that make excellence routine. What is less well known is that Grosset ventures outside the Clare for some other wines in his range, including this outstanding Adelaide Hills chardonnay with precision and poise. There are stone fruit and citrus in perfect harmony, hints of cashew nut and subtle oak on a palate that lingers impressively. Only 700 cases were made with fermentation in French oak barrqiues (40% new) and partial malo for texture. Studious but bright and a perfect partner for roast pork. 96/1000 from me. $77. https://www.grosset.com.au/
