Wine tasting notes

Only 500 dozen produced. The 2010 Grosset Pinot Noir shows some restraint on the nose, with gentle macerated red cherry and mulberry aromatics, brambley, black cherry and juicy redcurrant flavours, seductive silky texture, tight structure and a savoury finish that lingers. It is fine, focused and delicate with good weight and strong varietal character. While appealing drinking at present, it will open up more with short term cellaring when it will appear more ethereal, fleshier, more seductive and more complex.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2010) - 90 pts

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Pale to medium deep ruby in color, the 2010 Pinot Noir is a little closed and tight on the nose with hints of red cherries and pomegranate over violets, menthol and whiff of lavender. Tight, vibrant and elegant in the mouth, it is nicely structured with medium levels of grainy tannins, a crisp acid line, and a long finish. Drink it now to 2020+.


James Halliday (2016) - 97 pts

This is all about the opening of the peacock’s tail on the finish and aftertaste. The star-bright crimson colour semaphores that there’s a lot to come, yet the bouquet is holding its cards close to its chest. The palate lets it all hang out as a swathe of small red fruits and savoury whole-bunch components contest bragging rights, ultimately having to sign a truce after the glorious finish and aftertaste. 


Wine Front (2015) - 92+ pts

Only 200 dozen produced. This is a reticent pinot noir. Cards close to its chest kind of thing. It’s smoky and reductive with dry spice notes littered through, all set on a bed of macerated cherry fruit. It just seems muted and a little closed for now; it seems like it’s keeping its best for later. Composure and poise are strong points. No lack of flavour in a varietal context either.


Tyson Stelzer (2010) - 95 pts

Exacting precision and breathtaking beauty make this one of the finest vintages for Grosset pinot yet. It’s immaculately perfumed, with every detail of cherry blossom, rose petal, red cherry, mixed spice, dried flowers, anise and clove carrying from bouquet to long finish, lifted by tart morello cherry acidity and structured with fine, mineral, textural tannins.


Huon Hooke (2010) - 93 pts

An intriguing pinot noir which started off with simple cherry boiled-lolly aromas and built sappy, savoury, complex qualities the longer it breathed. Succulent mid-palate fruit with spicy and herbal flavours, before a nicely structured soft-tannin finish. Loads of charm.

Nicks.com.au - "Semi translucent dark crimson red colour with crimson mauve hue. On the nose dark cherry and violet top notes are followed by some dark plum, lightly toasted oak and spice. Light to medium weight the palate possesses a good power wave of flavour with dark cherries, plum and spice present followed by some dried meat and spicy cedar on the back palate. Fine grained, slightly dryish tannins. Medium to long aftertaste of dark cherry, spice and dried meats.Cellar 4-5 years (2016-2017)."

Nick Stock, Good Wine Guide - "The 2010 Grosset pinot is quite an elemental wine, with bright-red and dark cherry fruit aromas, some forest bracken and light toasty oak – looks fresh and poised. The palate has supple and even tannins and ripe cherry flavour, and toasty, spicy oak chimes in through the finish. Good length and balance here. "
