Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Shiraz 2014
Hand-picked, crushed, destemmed, 24 days fermentation and maceration, matured in French barriques (70% new) for 12 months, then transferred to a 5yo 4000l French foudre for a further 6 months, 9% ?14 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from the Crayeres Vineyard added. The immediate energy and drive the wine has lifts it out of the ruck, extending the length of the palate and allowing the undeniably complex black fruits full airplay. This is a classy wine, period, full stop.
