Xavier Bizot can make wine anywhere he pleases, he is a Bollinger and grew up amongst the Vignobles Superieurs of Champagne. Bizot has chosen to make wine alongside Brian Croser's family, from grapes harvested off three magnificent sites, on two paradoxically varied terrains. Planted to the salubrious Terra rosa soils atop an invaluable archeological dig at Wrattonbully, rich with the undisturbed fossils of ancient Cenozoic sea animals, Crayeres Vineyard was established right across the road from Tapanappa's illustrious Whalebone. The weather here is astonishingly similar to Bordeaux and makes an awesome Cabernet Franc. Xavier Bizot and Lucy Croser are also fortunate to take their pick of properties in Adelaide Hills. To wit, Charles (Chilly) Hargrave's.. The twin tales of terre a terre»

There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the Brunello commune of Montalcino. Whole bunches and wild ferments in the like of ancient clay urns, hand.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»

Crawford River Wines has been a stimulating challenge for a fourth generation wool grower exploring the viticultural benefits of Henty as a new and unique appellation. As the first Crawford Vineyard posts were pounded into the slope in 1975, a number of the bemused locals pondered the efficacy of a drive-in theatre at such a remote location! A growing number of vineyards adopting the undulating grazing fields and natural bushlands of the surrounding landscape are today making significant contributions to the tapestry of Victoria viticulture. Following vinification and extended time on lees, a small amount has been barrel fermented in old French oak barriques, lending subtle textural elegance, balance and finesse.
Light straw colour. Subtle is the keyword, fragrant bouquets of honeysuckle, minerals and lime . A deliciously fresh, soft and evenly poised palate underpinned by firm chalky minerality, courtesy of time spent on lees. Fine, linear acidity is complimented by plush texture throughout, the lingering, bone dry finish is bright, persistent and crisp.
