About

The Nerus is a wine new to Grosset portfolio.

After years spent experimenting with blending trials, combining Shiraz with everything from Mataro to Malbec, Jeffrey struck gold when he added a splash of the Sicilian variety Nero d’Avola to his locally grown Shiraz.

The Nero gave a lift of perfume and a suppleness of tannin which perfectly complemented the dark, savoury Shiraz Grosset had at his disposal. It’s an enchanting wine, ready to drink now or ponder in the medium term.

With 93 points from Mike Bennie and a tiny production of only 300 dozen, this rare bird from the Grosset flock will not be available for long.

What It Tastes Like

“Wonderful drinking. So aromatic, so flavoursome, so slender in tannin and crunchy acidity. Strong aromas of black olive, dark cherry, graphite and anise. The palate is medium weight, frisky, crisp and stretches in refreshing swirls long through the palate. Instant appeal; a fine boned, bright red with some additional detail to please those wishing to ponder a bit.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
