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. It is here within the cooler climes where Xavier Bizot has found a terroir to emulate the Grand Cru of Vallee de la Marne & Montagne de Reims. Simply stellar harvests, where vigneron de Champagne met the gifted grower from Adelaide... The twin tales of terre a terre»

Portsea Estate Portsea Pinot Noir Rose CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Mornington Victoria
Single vineyard MV6 clone Pinot Noir, from a very special site at Red Hill. Like all great growers, the founders of Portsea Estate were long established graziers, with a view to turning over their most auspicious paddocks to viticulture. Pinot Noir grows magnificently under the propitious confluence of cold yet sunny climes around Red Hill, treated to a timely maceration for optimal uptake of cheeky blush hues. Winsomely perfumed and rakishly pink, a judicious term of maturation in seasoned oak introduces savouryness and softens the crisp fruit acidity.
