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.. The twin tales of terre a terre»
Dr Frederick Kiel would take the trek by paddle steamer from Melbourne every summer during the late 1800s to spend his summers at Sorrento. His children established a grazing station nearby, on a property acquired from the Baillieu family along Portsea Ocean Beach, ultimately planted to vineyards in 2000. These are the most extreme western longitudes of Mornington, the undulating paddocks and sweeping views of tempestuous Bass Strait are a magical place for growing Burgundesque styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, well protected north facing parcels of propitious free draining limestone and calcareous sands.

Pemberton sits on the slow ripening southwest coast of Australia, fully blessed by the most appropriate climates and soil to make serious Sauvignon Blanc. The success of Australia's southwest regions are due in no small part to decades of viticulture by Capel Vale. Grapes from the cooler parts of Pemberton are harvested at optimum ripeness, crushed, de-stemmed and chilled. Juices are transferred to fermenters after three days cold settling and introduced to aromatic yeast. Vinifications are halted early to preserve natural grape sugars, adding body and enhancing fruit character in the finished wine.
Limpid pale straw green colour. Fine gravelly mineral aromas of Pemberton soils, citrus and cut grass, snap bean and snow pea working against a backdrop of mineral elements, kiwi and herbaceousness. The aromas are carried through to the textured palate, complemented by flavours of honeydew melon, tropical fruits, limes and flint. Match with grilled snapper, sashimi or goats cheese and truffle omelet.
