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.

Alexander Johnston purchased ninety seven hectares of land in 1892 which he named Pirramimma, an Aboriginal phrase meaning the moon and the stars. At Pirramimma, the harvesting is targetted to the winemaker's preferred scheduling as opposed to mother nature's dictates. The exactingly husbanded vines have been trained for generations to yield fruit that receives the highly polished, father to son winemaking traditions with elacrity. Grapes are harvested at full maturity, pressed and vinified, followed by a year's maturation in American oak barrels under the winery's naturally cool rammed earth warehouse.
Deep brick red in colour. Rich red cherry, spiced blackberry and cedary oak, cocoa, vanilla and light clove. Complex barrel characteristics, the palate shows a mosaic of dark berry fruits, briary blackcurrant, mulberries and chocolate complemented by toasty oak and integrated with hints of mint and tomato, a ripe tannin backbone all adding to a silky voluptuous mouthful. A rich firmly structured wine with all the elements in complete harmony.
