About

Jeffrey Grosset's Gaia vineyard is one of the most extreme in the Clare Valley. It sits apart as the highest and coolest vineyard in the region. A rocky, windblown site, rugged and largely inaccessible, Jeffrey chose this as his ideal location for producing Cabernet of finesse and structure. Close-planted at 3000 vines per hectare, each vine yields less than two bottles of wine. This intense concentration, together with the coolness of the site produces a wine perfect for the cellar. As Campbell Mattinson so eloquently put it in his 95 point review of the 2014 vintage, "Gaia is such a statuesque wine. It has cellarworthiness inked across its arms and chest."

What it Tastes Like

"Gaia is such a statuesque wine. It has cellarworthiness inked across its arms and chest. It presents dense blackcurrant, gum leaf, dark tobacco and cedar spice and although it’s mighty with both flavour and tannin it manages to still feel restrained. It’s a neat wine, an athlete in a suit. Screwcap-sealed, alive with aroma, gloriously cabernet-esque, dense, balanced, tannic and lengthy; what more do you want in a wine destined for the cellar?" - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
