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.

Cabernet Sauvignon Grampians Victoria

Wrought through the full tradition of old world winemaking techniques, a magnificent construct of Cabernet Sauvignon with imposing ebony fruit characters and dauntless, epic tannins, treat your Fallen Giants to a brew of ox cheek and kipflers, trotters and truffled red wine Jus.

Opaquely dark purple red. Black cherry, boysenberries and cassis, varietal leaf, briar and olive notes. Immense concentration on the well proportioned, linear palate, black currants, loganberries and savoury reductions, supported by august tannins and a framework of flattering, amiable oak, its muscular profile lingers long on a finish of sour plum piquancy and dulcet, perfumed dark berry fruits.
