2016 Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Cabernet Franc


2016 Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Cabernet Franc



The 2014 growing season was very challenging to start with cool and humid weather around flowering and severe heatwaves in January and early February; however, the growing season finished with very mild and warm conditions, with on average 6 weeks between véraison and harvest for all varieties. The Heat Degree Days summation (calculated as the sum of the monthly daily mean minus 10°C for the months of October to April included) was estimated at 1,414 degree days, which is lower than the average for Saint-Emilion (1,530 degree days). One striking feature of the 2014 vintage was a very good and uniform set in all varieties, leading to a very harmonious and slow ripening at the end of the season. As a result, the fruit had great colour and amazing tannins and flavours. The fruit was all handpicked on the 8th of April 2014 and was of excellent quality.


Terre à Terre is proud to present its third release of Cabernet Franc coming from its very unique close-spaced vineyard in Wrattonbully, South Australia.
