Crayères Vineyard Cabernet Franc Shiraz 2018
“These Terre à Terre wines don’t disappoint. I’ve been privileged to check out the Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Shiraz and Reserve and they’ve all impressed. There’s a fabulous humility about the way they carry themselves and this Cabernet Franc Shiraz is no different.
I’m captivated by the delicacy of this blend. A gentle crème brulèe and caramel type aroma wafts through early. The fruit is beautifully handled and strides along almost removing any chance of friction with the surface. A 63/37 blend, it steadily gains momentum that gravitates to the mid-palate and zones in. Dusty feels, dark chocolate and dried herbs add layers of pleasure. A terrific medium bodied wine.” 93 points
