Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2021
Arther: Angus Hughson | Killer Cabernet from Coonawarra and Friends
The beautifully proportioned 2021 Crayeres Vineyard has expansive aromas with a mix of sweet blackberry plus more earthy charcoal and dried earthy tones. Dense dark berry flavours are wrapped up in a blanket of firm drying tannins to support a lengthy finish. A bold wine from this site that is well suited to the cellar.
Terre à Terre is a small operation based on a single vineyard in Wrattonbully. It is the coming together of Australian and French wine royalty: Xavier Bizot from Champagne Bollinger and partner Lucy Croser, daughter of Brian Croser (one of the leading figures in Australian wine evolution since the 1980s). Unsurprisingly, there is an intense focus on quality that marries the best of French traditions with local technical focus. The Terre à Terre Reserve blend and Sauvignon Blanc are both worth tracking down.
