DESCRIPTION
  • Jeffrey Grosset established the isolated and windswept Gaia Vineyard in 1986.  Planted at an elevation of 570 meters, it is the highest vineyard in the Clare Valley.

    Grosset Gaia is produced from cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc grown at the rocky, isolated, wind-swept two-hectare Grosset Gaia Vineyard. This tiny hand-tended vineyard planted 33 years ago produces reds with an amazing consistency of fruit flavours and style.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    TASTING NOTES

    The 2016 Grosset Gaia has voluminous perfumes of blackcurrant, bramble and briar that are bold and enticing. It is powerful, dense and full-bodied, tightly wound around its firm core, yet softened by its velvety texture. It has a richness and concentration of flavour, balanced by substantial yet ultra-fine tannins. While more seductive and appealing on release than many vintages of Gaia, the 2016 shows every indication of being as age worthy as wine loves have come to expect.

  • REVIEWS

    'A tour de force of elegance and poise, offering deep concentration, finesse of tannin, exceptional length of flavour and a cool restraint.  Cassis, garrigue and faint cedar mesh well in the bouquet while the palate echoes cassis through its long draw across the palate.  Ultra fine Cabernet here, and a charming drinking experience ensues.'
