There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard Vineyard, establishing Brokenwood as one of the most cherished..

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.. The twin tales of terre a terre»

Peter Riddoch Rymill, great grandson of Coonawarra founder John Riddoch was a keen equestrian. He studied Science at Adelaide University and developed new breeds of cattle. He diversified into viticulture in 1968 with an experimental vineyard and pursued studies at oenology before establishing Rymill Estate in 1990. Parcels of choice Cabernet Sauvignon are selected from fully mature vines and treated to a rich barrel fermentation to produce a full bodied, richly flavoured Coonawarra wine. Matured up to two years in a selection of seasoned and new French oak, principally 225 litre barriques from trees planted up to three centuries ago to provide timber for the French navy.
Good intensity and depth of colour. Undeniably Coonawarra with its pleasant dusty character, fresh red fruit aromas and hints of tomato leaf. Incredibly complex and absolutely delectable with flavours of berries, strawberry seed, homemade plum jam, orange peel and savoury spice. Well integrated oak, a slight smoky character and good tannin structure, it ticks all the boxes.
