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 distinguished old vines at Summerton and a highly opportune slice of a slope on the lofty altitudes of Piccadilly Valley. It is here within the cooler climes where Xavier Bizot has found a terroir to emulate the Grand Cru of Vallee de la Marne & Montagne de Reims. Simply stellar harvests,..

Ashton Hills Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Adelaide Hills South Australia
Stephen George established three hectares of dry grown vines in Piccadilly Valley during the early 1980s, yields from this tiny patch of terroir remain extremely scant. A juggling act of no fewer than fifteen different clones to construct the consumate Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir, from a terroir and mesoclime very similar to Burgundy, a labour of love for one of the industry's most accomplished and venerated identities. Blend No.1 is made from fruit grown to Jim Griggs neighbouring Cemetery Block vineyard.

The cool, moist climes which surround the seven acre, steeply sloped Ashton Hill property sublimate into ideal food wines, well proportioned and fully flavoured. Pinot Noir grows well on the Ashton Hill property, coinciding with the proprietor's own love of all good things Pinot Noir. Stephen George grew up amongst the vines at Glenloth near Reynella and nascent Skillogalee in the Clare Valley, which was originally planted to vine by George's father in 1970. He is one of South Australia's most peer respected winemaking viticulturalists, a pioneer of Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir and a consultant to Clare Valley's eminent Wendouree, recipients of the exceptional Langton's classification of Australian wine.
