Wine Summary Image

A strong vintage for the Clare Valley, 2001 produced some superb rieslings. An excellent winter with good spring rains helped shepard the grapes through a hot summer. Winemaker reports from the time comment on good fruit intensity, fine structure and excellent varietal character, and perhaps most critically, excellent flavour development at low Baume levels, which meant that the grapes were able to be picked at lower sugar levels with great natural acid balance.

The second part of the equation here is the winemaker, Jeffrey Grosset. Widely regarded as the best Riesling exponent in the country, his Springvale vineyard produces an aromatic and refined wine, with significant cellaring potential.

Expert Reviews

94 Points. James Halliday - Wine Companion.20 July 2011

Light to medium yellow-green; the bouquet is quite rich, with more overt fruit than the wine often displays when young; the palate, likewise, is powerful, with considerable depth and length, the aftertaste full of authority, yet not aggressive.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

It has pure intense, lime citrus perfumes, rich lime juice and mineral flavours and assertive acidity which is held in check by the quality of the fruit. This is a pristine, concentrated riesling that is tight, taut and lean, powerful, crisp and dry. With food, it does open out – even at this early stage of its development – so that its fruit appears voluminous with hints of floral and even tropical characters co-existing with dense, vibrant lime characters.

A great riesling that has the capacity to age for ten years or more if it is well cellared.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Grosset Wines is an independently owned winery producing seven highly regarded premium wines each vintage.

Established in 1981, the winery is situated in the historic township of Auburn at the southern tip of the Clare Valley, 100 kilometres north of Adelaide.

While in its third decade, annual production is capped at 10,000 cases (dozens), predominantly produced from twenty hectares of estate vineyards. Remaining small and focused has allowed Grosset to preserve the character and individuality of the wines, developing a significant international profile by producing wines deemed consistently outstanding, benchmarks in their class.

Grosset Wines’ philosophy has remained steadfast over thirty years. The emphasis is on purity of fruit. Vineyards are hand-tended, and each bunch of grapes is harvested at optimum ripeness. The winemaking process is gentle and uncomplicated. With dedication, discipline and the application of knowledge garnered through decades of experience, the result is the finest expression of variety and place.
