Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front "Gaia is such a statuesque wine. It has cellarworthiness inked across its arms and chest. It presents dense blackcurrant, gum leaf, dark tobacco and cedar spice and although it’s mighty with both flavour and tannin it manages to still feel restrained. It’s a neat wine, an athlete in a suit. Screwcap-sealed, alive with aroma, gloriously cabernet-esque, dense, balanced, tannic and lengthy..."
Tyson Stelzer "All the character of this high, cool, tough site is encapsulated in the 25th anniversary edition of Gaia. You can feel the struggling vines in tiny berry cassis concentration, the grip of cold nights in fragrant violet perfume and the rocky geology in fine mineral texture. It is the vinous signature of a remarkable and dramatic place, and it signs off with tangy lightness, effortless coherence and grand endurance."
Decanter Magazine ~ The World’s Top 10 White Winemakers #6 Jeffrey Grosset
"When the young Jeffrey Grosset launched his own winery in the Clare Valley in the early 1980’s, he was swimming against the tide. Back then, Chardonnay was the rising star of Australian Wine. But Grosset wanted to make Riesling, and to focus on letting the grapes speak for themselves. The rest of the Australian wine industry has, of course, caught up with Grosset since, thanks in part to the example set by this focused, restlessly intelligent winemaker. By consistently producing arguably Australia’s two best Rieslings – the flowery, lime-rich Watervale and the steely, firm Polish Hill – Grosset has not only helped steer the reversal in this variety’s fortunes, but has provided one of the country’s most powerful arguments in favour of the reality of terroir"
"The undisputed monarch of Clare Valley is Jeffrey Grosset, whose 32-year reign has seen a raft of superlative wines set standards to which other winemakers can only aspire."
Andrew Caillard "The best thing about Grosset, is the sheer enthusiasm, utter commitment and genuine love for making something sublime and brilliant."
Grosset Wines are an independently owned winery producing highly regarded premium wines. Established in 1981, the winery is situated in the historic township of Auburn at the southern tip of the Clare Valley, 100 kilometers north of Adelaide.
Jeffrey Grosset, owner, and founder, has always been an innovator, challenging tradition and questioning accepted practices. He campaigned to institute the legal integrity of the Riesling grape in Australia, was a leading proponent for the introduction of screwcap closures and privately funded research into the subject.
Grosset Wines’ philosophy has remained steadfast over thirty years. The emphasis is on the purity of fruit. The estate vineyards, which are ACO certified organic, are hand tended and each bunch of grapes is harvested at optimum ripeness.
