“Enjoyable to the last; and it will last” – 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon

  • Posted by Terre à Terre Wines

Welcomed by a bright and intense cherry colour, this highly stylish French inspired Wrattonbully Cabernet is an interesting combination of pretty red fruits, herbal complexity, and savoury oak. A lighter style than most of local competitors, this wine is elegant, gently spiced and somewhat ethereal. Enjoyable to the last; and it will last. Source: WineGenius.com […]

Terre a Terre 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon – seriously structured

  • Posted by Terre à Terre Wines
  • On November 30, 2011
Deepish red, purple tints. Eucalyptus/mint plus nut, spice and subtle oaky aromas, not yet fully settled, but clean and good quality. Same in mouth, where it has a load of tannin and tight grip on the finish. Needs food or time. A seriously structured wine that would be transformed by food, I suspect. Author: Huon […]

Terre à Terre Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 “The pick of this lineup”

  • Posted by Terre à Terre Wines
  • On August 10, 2011
Extended (2 weeks) cold maceration post ferment. 21 months in oak, 100 days (exactly) in a 4,000L foudre. Close spaced (1.5m x 1.5m) plantings. The real deal. Such attention to detail makes this wine. Real deal indeed. Lovely vibrant voilet/red colour and lighter than anything else in the lineup. Immediately more vibrant on the nose […]

Wrattonbully Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 – 94 points

  • Posted by Terre à Terre Wines
  • On August 5, 2011
Light but bright crimson; a vibrantly fresh, light- to medium-bodied wine with a very particular juicy, tactile character to the palate, at least in part due to the sophisticated fermentation and oak maturation (for two years) techniques employed. Vive la difference. Author: James Halliday Source: Australian Wine Companion Review Date: Friday, August 5, 2011 Rating: […]

91+ from the Wine Front for the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon

  • Posted by Terre à Terre Wines
  • On July 20, 2011
Close-planted cabernet vines planted in soil that rests on a shelf of 37 million year old limestone. This is Wrattonbully region cabernet. Decent cabernet. Plump with curranty fruit but fine and tannic through the finish. Good balance. Dusty edges. Tannin builds as it breathes. Signs of vanillin oak in the background. Would expect this to […]
