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.. The twin tales of terre a terre»
It was a matrimony between an American biochemist and the founder of Margaret River Devils Lair, that set the scene for one of the nation's most illustrious estates. A member of the Top 1OO Wineries of World, Giant Steps were established 1997, with a view to assembling an elite range of limited release Yarra Valley vintages. Crafted from the fruit of superior sites, some yielding just a few hundred cases each year, these are exclusive editions from bespoke parcels of elite terroir, bearing the curiously cryptic monikers of precious blocks of vine, Gruyere Farm, Applejack and Wombat Creek. Fashioned for aficianados of the euro style, defined by their winsome fruit and graceful tannins, the Giant Steps single vineyard range are all distinct for their expression of place, each articulate of a unique soil and influence of..

Watershed Shades Rose CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Merlot Margaret River Western Australia
Watermelon hued, redolent with juicy fruit, piquant of spice, slightly tangy with revitalizing citrus acid, evocative of aeroplane jelly and iced tea. As exquisitely balanced as it is complex, Shades make a Rosé that stands apart from the rest, cannily fashioned to a mouthfilling Tavel styling, brief contact on skins makes the colour and infuses the palate with a lick of lip pursing tannin. A luscious pink wine, flavoursome enough to stand on it's own and sophisticated enough for pairing off with fine gourmandise.
A mostly Shiraz wine with a smaller component of Merlot. The best vineyard sites around Margaret River's inner sanctum were selected by the Watershed estate's founders on the basis of soils and climactic aspects. Harvest of fruit is determined when the balance of flavour, acid and skin colours are optimal, the intention being to capture the essential elements of Margaret River's unique maritime influences, sealing the virtues of vineyard within a rich and racey, deeply flavoured Rosé wine. Following harvest, components are crushed and steeped on skins to acquire optimal depth of colour. Following fermentation, the separate batches are assembled into the finished wine.
A beautiful light garnet rose colour. Bouquets are complex, strawberries with lifted plum and violet, lifted aromas of strawberries and cream. A vibrantly fruit driven palate completed by subtle hints of raspberry on the fresh soft finish. An awesome food wine, suited to barbeques, Asian recipes and Al fresco cuisine.
