The rugged bush land of the Clare Valley is a special place and it?s hard to think of it without Grosset wines coming to mind, perhaps its best advocate whose wines are the regions best exponent. As a region the Clare Valley contradicts itself, providing a climate growing medium to full bodied Cabernet based wines with elegant precision, and some of the worlds finest and longest lived Rieslings. Despite being 50 miles north of the warmer Barossa, it sits atop a high plateau of mineral rich soils alongside a slight mountain range, the Mt. Lofty Ranges. This provides interesting sites for those that care to explore, with sun filled days, cool nights, diurnal temperature swings and cooling breezes the norm.
Fragrant nose of white florals, lemon blossom and fresh garden herbs with a hint of green apple and pear. The palate shows zesty lime juice flavours typical of Clare, a hint of green apple sweetness, an elegant weight and texture and zippy finish.
