Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Cabernet Franc Shiraz 2020

Author: Steve Leszczynski


“Wrattonbully Cabernet Franc done well. Very, very well. With a beautiful perfume, I’m hooked from the outset. Given the asking price, this is an excellent buy. Purple flowers, dried petals and a boysenberry swirl ensure my full attention is focused. Loaded with blackberries, a sheet of fine powdery tannins is sprayed through the mouth leaving a dusty chew to muse over. With a cheeky 8% Shiraz making a contribution, dried herbs take charge with Dutch chocolate before the blackberries swing back around to cut in on close. That puckering tannin is moreish deluxe so I’m happy to go back again and again. Superfine spices add some classy window dressing late but they are good enough to not steal the limelight. A super wine that will also reward the patient. Drink to ten years+”
