About Us

SERIOUS, DRY REDS

Bordeaux Style -

2012 GAIA, Grosset. Clare Valley, Australia

Bin: 520
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: “Gaia is one of the most astonishing vineyards you’ll see. Planted at 570 metres, at the highest point of the Clare Valley, the vineyard is an elongated triangular wedge of emerald green that sits above the rolling golden cornfields of the Clare Valley. Named after James Lovelock’s books, Gaia is a metaphor for the importance of the diversity and complexity of species.” Anthony Rose, The Independent
Grape Variety: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc; matured in French oak (half new oak)
Producer: Jeffrey Grosset established his winery in 1981 and now has an international reputation, in particular as the finest producer of Riesling in the 'new world'. However his other wines should not be overlooked!
Old Bridge Rating: Unusually for an Australian red, this is all about freshness, elegance and longevity. Very 'Bordeaux' in style
Press Reviews: "A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2012 Gaia Proprietary Red presents an attractive nose of cassis, blackberries and plums with nunaces of pencil shavings, menthol, cloves and toast. The medium-bodied palate is elegantly framed by fine tannins and nice freshness before finishing long. 92 points". Lisa Perrotti-Brown, eRobertParker.com
