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... The twin tales of terre a terre»

From a precious parcel of Pinot Noir, picked off an isolated block of cane pruned vine, the shallowest patch of soil in the vineyard, which keeps vine vigor low, bunch size down and berry size small. The grapes from this block have a high skin to must ratio, intense colour and intensity of concentration. Grapes are gently destemmed, a third are included as whole bunches, into open top fermenters, hand plunged twice daily to extract tannin structure and deep colour. Upon completion, batches are pressed into a selection of new and seasoned, Sirugue and Bossuet, Allier and Chatillon forest French oak barriques, for malolactic and a term of maturation, bottled unfiltered and fined.
