Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Shiraz 2014
A pretty light red with crimson hues in the glass, a nose of red pastilles, lifted plum and blackberry that benefits from white pepper and cedar french oak.
A medium bodied wine that shows background notes of earth with supple tannin and tight grained oak giving structure and soaking up dark plum fruit. Subtle peppery notes give plenty of contrast with an enjoyable interplay between fleshy fruit and subtle oak influences framing the finish.
A wine of elegance and finesse.
Drink: 2016 to 2018
