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..

Returned servicemen from the Great War could look forward to government grants of pastoral freehold. West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture. The fertile lands of Sussex Vale were originally established to animal husbandry by the discharged troopers, generations of livestock enriched the soils and it was astutely sown to vines in 1973. Fortuitously placed at the very heart of the Australian west's most illustrious estates, it continued to occupy the thoughts of neighbouring Howard Park's chief winemaker, until he acquired the property and relaunched a softly spoken range of..

Half the grapes are hand picked and whole bunch pressed, the balance picked in the cool of night, preserving vibrant fruit character. Parcels are pressed off and the free run juices separated before settling overnight, racked to an extravagant selection of mostly new French oak barriques with varying levels of solids, achieving intense barrel ferment characters and palate weight. All batches are fermented wild without any added yeasts or malolactic to retain splendid natural acidity, stirred throughout nine months maturation, allowing the lees to impart further complexity to the texture and palate weight. The best barrels are identified and assembled into the final wine.
Lovely bright straw with subtle green hue. Vibrant aromas of spiced pear, apples and orange blossom combine with a hint of toasted vanilla bean. The palate is fresh and tight, with restrained fruit weight complimenting the structure and texture of the elegant French oak tannins, followed by minerality and flint. Delicate oak spice sits beautifully, a seamless mineral acidity contributes to a long, crisp, yet silky finish, satisfying and clean.
