Crayères Vineyard Cabernet Franc Shiraz 2018
“Interesting blend and a wine which is a pleasure to drink. Good concentration of flavours here. Lifted aromatics. The nose offers lovely dark berry notes and some dry herbs. There is a little oak evident but certainly not enough to mar the wine. A hint of sappy dry vegetation.
The palate moves more to red fruits than the darker berry notes on the nose. Cherries notably. Fine tannins and decent length. It is still quite youthful and really would enjoy another three to five years in the cellar. Quite bright. The length is carried by some underlying acidity. A wine with a good future. Good value.”
