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»

Rymill Yearling Coonawarra Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Coonawarra South Australia
Rymill maintain a commitment to the health and sanctity of the rich, red soils which set Coonawarra apart. The younger estate vineyards which are the source of Yearling Shiraz are managed to the highest standard of sustainable viticultural practices.

These flavours carry through on the palate, enhanced by a rich mouthfeel and soft, round tannins. A vital, polished Shiraz of substance and style to enjoy today.

Following the harvest, grapes are inoculated and vinified in twenty tonnes rotary fermenters, which periodically mix the fruit and keep skins wet, maintaining temperatures at 20C to 25C. A natural culture is employed, selected for its capacity to preserve attractive berry aromas while keeping wild yeasts in check. Regular tasting twice daily throughout a week of vinification is followed by a term of maceration on skins for optimal extraction. Batches are pressed, assembled and racked to a selection of pre loved oak barrels for a brief but judicious course of maturation, aimed at integrating all components and taming the tannins, while retaining fresh Coonawarra fruit character.
Deep purple, magenta hues. Dark cherries and plum notes, blackberry and fruit compotes, liquorice, vanilla and cedar box oak. The fruits carry on to the palate, vibrant, generous and round, supported by soft tannins, following through with a subtle spiciness on the finish. Yearling has been fashioned to enjoy today around the dinner table alongside a crackling roast lamb.
