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»

Scarpantoni Estate Riserva CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
Here is the culmination of over fifty years viticultural and winemaking expertise, only ever produced in the finest years. An accord of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, exuding intense aromas of blackcurrant, mocha and spice, the palate is rich and robust, the tannins are mouthfiling and refined. Estate Reserve is a wine of exceptional quality, of perfectly framed fruit and pliable long lived tannins, for those wanting the reward of genuinely outstanding McLaren Vale Cabernet Shiraz, built to go the distance by a Jimmy Watson winning team.
Domenico Scarpantoni originally worked for Hardy Wines and Seaview. To this day, Scarpantoni is very much a family business with every step of production, from viticulture to the packaged product done entirely on the premises. The last two decades have seen major expansions to the Scarpantoni Estate, the quality of the wines, whilst excellent in earlier vintages, has reached new highs. There have been renewed plantings of premium Shiraz, a wetlands development, a fully renovated winery and cellar door, and the restoration of the estate's historical homestead. The Scarpantoni family maintain complete control over every stage of the winemaking process, to ensure vintages of the highest standard.
Deep red-purple colour. Aromas of licorice and of cherry, leather and mint and spice characters, followed by leaf and berry aromas. Ripe blackcurrants and plums interweave with attractive cedary new oak and mocha barrel ferment influences, while the palate is generous and smooth - a delightful marriage of ripe fruit with sweet oak.
