Xavier has found himself to be one of the most watched minimal intervention producers currently kicking about Victoria. Starting his reign of terrificness working with growers from a few select spots throughout the state, the time came a few years back to take a deep breath and find his own vineyards to love and care for. Once he found a gorgeous little patch in the Otways, in south-west VIC, it was love at first site.
His Geelong Chardonnay has been titled Halfway to Heaven and I've no idea why as drinking this thing feels much more like you made it the whole way there. Just a racy, mineral little love affair that I'd climb a stairway for.
