The winners of the 2018 Qantas epiQure Halliday Wine Companion Awards were revealed in Melbourne last week, and Clare Valley’s own Grosset Wines was among them, taking out the best value winery category.
James Halliday is widely regarded as Australia’s most respected wine critic.
“Jeffrey Grosset is unchallenged as Australia’s greatest maker of riesling, but he also makes sublime chardonnay and pinot noir from the Adelaide Hills, semillon sauvignon blanc from the Hills and Clare Valley, and Gaia – his Bordeaux blend – from a high altitude vineyard in the Clare Valley,” Mr Halliday said.
“Overall, Grosset is one of the top 10 wineries in Australia, and there is no chance of losing that status.
“And on a world scale, his wines are significantly underpriced.”
Meanwhile, Kevin Mitchell and Kathleen Bourne’s Woodvale was listed in Halliday’s top 10 best new wineries.
They were selected from 77 new wineries in the 2018 edition of Wine Companion.
