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..

Boutique winemaking affords great advantages, every vine can be uniquely husbanded, quality control is maximised, each barrel can be individually sampled and assembled into the perfect cuvee. Engineering types are innately suited to such viticulture. Colin Best embarked upon his sabbatical to the great vineyards of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. He returned to plant Pinot Noir on a craggy half hectare near Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills. An ancient masonry wool mill was outfitted for winemaking and Leabrook Estate was born.

Apulia is surrounded on three sides by sea, the maritime climes stimulate vines and infuse grapes with the prevailing brinyness of salty winds. Just perfect for Chardonnay. A crisp fruit forward Chardonnay that smells of Mediterranean and tastes like the fruit of paradise.

Salento Peninsula is the celebrated heel of the Italian boot, it enjoys a salubrious Mediterranean climate with mild winters and long, hot, dry summers. Chardonnay vines prefer warmer climes, hilly clay and limestone terrains cooled by prevailing breezes. These are the conditions of Salento Peninsula in a nutshell. Chardonnay grapes are picked at full physiological ripeness and softly pressed at the Tormaresca cellars. Musts are chilled to 10C and cold settled for a natural clarification, vinified in controlled fermenters at a moderate 16C for optimal extracion of rich fruit esters without any unnecessary uptake of phenolics. Batches are treated to a term of unoaked maturation before assembling into the finished wine.
Light yellow, greenish huets. Predominantly fruity nose with crisp apple characters, citrus fruit rinds, floral notes, acacia flowers and hawthorn. Mouthfilling palate of freshly cut orchard fruit flavours, peaches and applejack, mineral notes and savoury chalkiness, well balanced and lingering on a finish of oyster shell and light balsamic notes.
