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»

Chardonnay Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier Yarra Valley Victoria
Dominique Portet grew up amongst the vineyards of France and appreciates the rejuvenating qualities of blush coloured wines.

The tide has turned in Australia towards the refreshing, savoury styles which have always been heralded in France.

Portet is the ninth generation of his family to be committed to winemaking, yet he is the first to establish a winery and label bearing the family name. Brut Rose is a cepage of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, grown exclusively to fine vineyards in the cool districts of Yarra Valley. Brut Rose draws on centuries of French tradition, bottled fermented and disgorged shortly before release, receiving only a small amount of red wine and a light addition of liqueur tirage. Grapes are all hand picked, gently pressed and vinified before being treated to secondary fermentation inside its own bottle. Aged and tiraged for two years under the Dominique Portet cellars, disgorged and lightly dosed prior to resealing and release.
Deep salmon pink colour with a a creamy mousse and persistent bead. Fresh strawberries and rose petals on the nose, nuances of stonefruit and hints of light bread spice. Red berry flavours and tangy rhubarb characters, peaches and red delicious apple follow through to the fresh and dry, creamy finish. Without a doubt, this sparkling sensation will add something special to boardroom luncheons, long languid dinners and discrete soirées.
