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.. The twin tales of terre a terre»
The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most profoundly structured, intensely focused, yet softly spoken range of wines. Powerful yet disciplined Cabernet, generously proportioned Malbec, august Chardonnay and mesmerising Riesling, all representing essential drinking and salient value, for every learned west coast gourmande in the..

Sons Of Eden Sons of Eden Pumpa Cabernet Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Tempranillo Eden Valley South Australia
A unique but decidedly Aussie cépage of Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, fortified by the inclusion of Barossa Tempranillo. Len Pumpa was a grower of Prussian descent, he persevered throughout the lean years of Australian viticulture, at a time when table wines were unfashionable and grape growing was an unviable labour of love. The wonderful endowment of grand old vineyards now managed by Sons of Eden, are due in large part to the selfless toil of Pumpa and his devotion to the vine.

A collation of hand harvested fruit, picked at complete physiological ripeness, the Shiraz off vines over fifty years of age, grown to splendid sites at Moculta and various altitudes on Valley Eden, a component of Tempranillo from Light Pass in Barossa contributes backbone and complexity. Bunches are destemmed into small one and two tonnes fermenters, treated to a regimen of hand plunging and pumpovers. Vinified to dryness and treated to several days maceration, batches are pressed off into a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak hogsheads, for fifteen months maturation and the final assemblage, clarified through rackings and bottled without fining or filtration.
Bright scarlet colour. Lifted red cherry nose, pepper and plums, strawberries, leather and spicy cassis notes. A soft velvety palate, textural, layered with great length of flavour, black fruits and morello cherries are seasoned by tomato leaf savouryness, supported by fine, pliant tannins and framed by a trim of warming, spicebox oak.
