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.

Combines the blueberry and blackcurrant fruit characters of Yallingup with the perfumed violets and toothsome red currants of Cowaramup, generous fruit depth with soft oak influence, in fine support with a toasty, spiced background. Full body and sweet round flavours of cherry and other dark fruits, as well as melted chocolate, make Amy instantly appealing and oh so easy to enjoy.

Bunches are destemmed into open fermenters and the juices seeded with pure yeast culture. Temperatures kept to a maximum of 30C and ferments hand plunged up to four times daily. As each batch reaches dryness it is tasted daily for tannin balance and pressed when the optimum has been reached. Skin contact ensues for a period of ten to fifteen days.Wines are racked to tank and allowed to settle before being racked off gross lees and seeded for malolactic. Upon completion all batches are racked, assembled and returned to barrel. After fifteen months maturation in a selection of new and seasoned French oaks, the wine is treated to a light skim milk fining, sterile filtered and bottled.
