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.

Airline pilots make surprisingly good wine. Their appreciation of the sciences, a respect for the weather and a bird's eye view of the land, all invaluable to the winemaker's art. John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne. Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland and established a vineyard called Bellvale.

From vineyards around the towns of Mazan, Moimoiron, Villes sur Azon, Puymeras and Saint-Didier on the southern slopes of Mont Ventoux, where the average height above sea level is three hundred metres. The soils can vary according to altitude but consist for the most part of deposits left around the base of chalky Mont Ventoux by receding seas of the tertiary period. Rich, red mediterranean soils are blended amongst the chalky debris and round stones. Vinification is adapted slightly to suit each grape variety. Nearly all parcels are lightly crushed and treated to a traditional extended fermentation in 150 and 300 hectolitre concrete vats, before ten months maturation in a combination of vats and large oak barrels.
Deep cherry red colour. The nose is rich and spicy exuding ripe fruit aromas The palate is well balanced with notes of red berries, cocoa and plum, supported by hints of background oak, a good solid red wine finishing with soft and pleasant tannins. Made to be enjoyed young, can accompany a wide range of flavoursome foods and is immensely satisfying just on its own.
